What is Creating Shared Value?

We believe that our company will be successful in the long term by creating value, both for our shareholders and for society. We call this approach Creating Shared Value (CSV). CSV is principle for how we do business.

Our positive impact on society focuses on enabling healthier and happier lives for individuals and families, on helping the development of thriving and resilient communities, and on stewarding the planet’s natural resources for future generations. These impact areas are interconnected and are firmly embedded in our corporate purpose: to unlock the power of food to enhance quality of life for everyone, today and for generations to come.

Underpinning all our efforts to maximise the creation of shared value are our company values, all of which are rooted in respect: respect for ourselves, respect for others, respect for the diversity of the world we live in and respect for the future.

Taking a long-term approach has always been Nestlé’s approach to business. CSV brings business and society together by generating sustainable economic value in a way that also produces value for society.
