Looking to the future, Creating Shared Value remains the fundamental guiding principle for how Nestlé does business. CSV is the strategy tool that Nestlé uses to operationalize and manage all the actions it takes to ensure it creates value for shareholders and for society. This is how Nestlé brings its purpose to life — to enhance quality of life and contribute to a healthier future.
Our focus areas are firmly embedded in our purpose. Individuals and families, our communities and the planet as a whole are interconnected, and our efforts in each of these areas are supported through our commitments, the vast majority of which have been reframed and feature objectives to 2020. These commitments will, in turn, enable us to meet our ambitions for 2030 in line with the timescale of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
