Our positive impact on society

Creating Shared Value (CSV) is our way of delivering a long-term positive

impact for shareholders and for society, through everything that we

do as a company.

CSV is unique in that it is a business strategy that allows us to target activities where we

can optimise the creation of value for our shareholders, as well as for society.

The introduction of the Creating Shared Value approach 10 years ago helped us identify,

operationalise and manage strategies towards linking business benefit and social impact. Since

then, we have made significant progress, launching in 2012 a set of public commitments that we use

to drive continuous improvement.

Our positive impact on society is evident across our core focus areas and some of the highlights of

the past 10 years of our public reporting are shown here. The principles behind CSV driving Nestlé’s

approach to business, however, have been with us throughout the 150 years of our existence.
