What is CSV?

Partnerships in focus

To Nestlé, the term Creating Shared Value reflects our deep seated belief that in order to build a business that will be successful over the long term, we must create value for our shareholders, and at the same time, value for the society in which we operate.

For us, this means creating value for our shareholders by offering products and services that help people improve their nutrition, health and wellness.

Creating Shared Value is the approach we take to our business as a whole; we fundamentally believe that you can’t have one without the other and that companies must take the lead in bringing business and society together.

Globally our Creating Shared Value priorities focus on water, nutrition and rural development. Not only are these key challenges facing our business, they are issues which we, as the largest food and beverage company, strive to address and make a difference for today and future generations.

We continue to actively manage our commitments to the environment, social and economic sustainability needed for operating our factories and for the sustainable growth and development of the communities and countries where we do business.


We believe the global goal of being the leading Nutrition, Health and Wellness Company can only be attained by Creating Shared Value and by integrating it into our daily operations.
