Our impact

How we make an impact

Business benefits and positive social impact must be mutually reinforcing. This is the core of Creating Shared Value.

We believe that Creating Shared Value enables us to optimize value for our shareholders and have a long-term positive impact on all stakeholders connected to our business.

This is why at Nestlé we have adopted a multi-faceted approach to how we innovate. Stefan Palzer, Chief Technology Officer, Nestlé S.A.
