BV Assurance

At Nestlé we believe that, to succeed as a business in the long-term and create value for our shareholders, we must also create value for society. Our aim is to provide safe, responsibly produced food and beverages of the highest quality. But we must do this in a way which protects natural resources for future generations and ensures the people and communities along our supply chain prosper.

In 2012, we launched our UK & Ireland Creating Shared Value Plan which included a range of targets from reducing our water use to sourcing certified sustainable cocoa to help us meet these challenges. One year on and we are proud to update you on the progress we have made and our determination to do better in the future.
