Creating Shared Value (CSV) is at the heart of Nestlé’s approach to achieving our purpose: to unlock the power of food to enhance quality of life for everyone, today and for generations to come. We have sought to build our business approach on decisions that are not just good for us and our shareholders, but for society and the planet as well.
Climate change and environmental threats such as the degradation of forests, land, soil and waterways are impacting farmers and communities. These threats put farmer livelihoods at risk and jeopardize the accessibility and availability of quality food.
That's why we are taking action to advance regenerative food systems at scale. We are embarking on a journey toward regeneration; to help protect, renew and restore the environment, improve the livelihoods of farmers and enhance the resilience and well-being of communities and our consumers.
