Our commitment: Ensure that all employees and stakeholders can easily report possible compliance violations
By 2016 – Reinforce awareness of the existence of confidential reporting lines across the organization.
The Nestlé Corporate Business Principles reflect our commitment to a strong compliance culture as a non-negotiable foundation of how we do business. Through our Code of Business Conduct and Supplier Code, we encourage employees, suppliers and stakeholders to report practices or actions believed to be inappropriate or illegal, and we assess and investigate the reports if warranted, responding appropriately.
Our internal system has been implemented in the U.S., and we have outlined steps for managing concerns and complaints to all of our employees. Suppliers have also been informed of the ‘Tell Us’ system through the Supplier Code.
