Nestlé’s efforts to meet a series of commitments in areas where the company engages with society are detailed in a new report, Nestlé in Society 2013 (pdf, 3Mb).
The 35 pledges cover nutrition, water, rural development, sustainability and compliance.
Nestlé aims to fulfil all these commitments by 2020 or earlier. Ten are new this year and six are updated, based on feedback from stakeholders over the last 12 months.
The report underlines Nestlé’s fundamental belief that, for a company to be successful over the long term and create value for shareholders, it must also create value for society. The commitments show our determination to achieve this.
They include, for example, leading the industry in nutrition and health research, and providing nutritionally sound products designed for children.
