Creating Shared Value

How we do business is based on sustainability – ensuring that our activities preserve the environment for future generations. For Nestlé, sustainable development means “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.

At Nestlé, we have analysed our value chain and determined that the areas of greatest potential for joint value optimization with society are Nutrition, Water and Rural Development. These activities are core to our business strategy and vital to the welfare of the people in the countries where we operate.

For Nestlé, there are three areas which when taken together, set us apart:

Nutrition
