Hershey’s CSR Report Progress
The Hershey Company is committed to publishing regular corporate social responsibility reports that give updates on our publicly stated goals and metrics. Our Shared Goodness framework represents our conviction that strong company performance is intrinsically linked to responsible, sustainable operation. We use this model as a filter through which to evaluate and prioritize our existing commitments and new opportunities.
The rewards of operating ethically while delivering strong financial performance, which we call Good Business, create value for our shareholders and build the skills, influence and financial strength that help our many stakeholders achieve a Better Life and Bright Future. Better Life and Bright Future, in turn, benefit the communities upon which we rely and deepen our sense of purpose and teamwork, thus motivating and enhancing our Good Business performance.
• Good Business: Because our business must create value for all of our many stakeholders, we go to great lengths to ensure it is managed in an effective, ethical and fiscally successful manner.
• Better Life: Creating value for all means that the skills, influence and financial strength that we build can help our stakeholders attain more meaningful lives.
• Bright Future: We believe bright futures start with basic nutrition. That’s why we’re expanding beyond our work in children’s education to provide children here and abroad with the basic nutrition they need to learn and grow.
