NESTLÉ delivers on its promises and commitments by following through. The firm has launched several global initiatives to help children lead healthier lives and improve communities, and it is working towards net-zero environmental impact across its operations. Shared value-creation is the route Nestlé has taken to distribute the benefits — and responsibilities — of its business. It underlines eight broad goals with 36 detailed public commitments, regularly reporting on progress. It supports early development programmes and the advancement of nutritional knowledge. It enhances rural development, protects human rights and promotes diverse and rewarding workplaces. Nestlé is an advocate of environmental responsibility and a dedicated steward of water resources. The BV judging panel announces Nestlé as the 2020 winner of the award for Best Corporate Citizen (Switzerland).
