Today Nestlé published the 2016 edition of its annual Nestlé in society: Creating Shared Value full report. It follows the summary version published on 7 March 2017 as part of Nestlé’s Annual Report.

Guided by the company purpose to enhance quality of life and contribute to a healthier future, Nestlé works alongside partners to create shared value, thus contributing to society while ensuring the long-term success of the business.

Nestlé’s Creating Shared Value (CSV) priorities are those areas of greatest intersection between the business and society, and where it can create the most value and make the most difference. These include: nutrition, rural development, and water, as well as environmental sustainability, human rights and compliance, and our people.

These priority areas are used to identify issues material to Nestlé, and in turn inform the company’s 42 commitments. For 2016, Nestlé updated its commitments to include objectives to be achieved by 2020, laddering up to the company’s three overarching ambitions for 2030 in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):

  • Help 50 million children lead healthier lives;
  • Help improve 30 million livelihoods in communities directly connected to the business; and
  • Strive for zero environmental impact in its operations.   

New for this year, the 2016 report looks at the linkages between Nestlé’s CSV approach and the 17 SDGs.  The 2016 report was submitted for the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) SDG Mapping Service.  

This is Nestlé’s third report prepared ‘in accordance’ with the comprehensive option of the GRI G4 guidelines, and the second year it reports against the United Nations Guiding Principles Reporting Framework, including on 11 salient issues.
