Even when we are making progress, we will always need the advice of the best experts and advocates. We use stakeholder engagement to develop and improve our corporate policies and commitments. It helps us to build our business and target our societal investments. Our annual programme of stakeholder convenings and Creating Shared Value events provides an opportunity to intensify that dialogue, building on our understanding of critical societal issues. The interaction develops the capability of our people, facilitating more effective collective action. Our stakeholder convenings aim to promote increased levels of trust and mutual respect. Our businesses engage with stakeholders at a country level. Outcomes are fed back to senior management through the Nestlé in society Board.
