Corporate, social and environmental responsibility


Creating Shared Value is the fundamental principle of how Nestlé does business. It is our way of creating value for both shareholders and for society at the same time.

We understand that the prospects of our business are linked to the health and resilience of the society and world in which we operate. Our priorities are those areas with the greatest connection between Nestlé’s business and society.

Our 36 public commitments bring to life our purpose of enhancing quality of life and contributing to a healthier future. These commitments contribute to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The details of our progress against them are published yearly in the Nestlé in Society Creating Shared Value report.
