For a company to be successful in the long term and create value for its shareholders, it must also create value for society. We call this Creating Shared Value (CSV). Creating Shared Value encourages businesses to create economic and social value simultaneously by focusing on the social issues that they are uniquely capable of addressing.
In 2006, Nestlé became the first organisation to adopt this approach, but our history of working together with society stems back to our roots. For maximum impact, Nestlé has focused its Creating Shared Value efforts and investments on three areas – nutrition, water and rural development – as these are core to our business activities and vital for our value chain.
CSV builds on a strong base of performance in environmental sustainability and compliance. In addition, we recognise the vital role of our people and the importance of engaging and collaborating with other organisations.
