What is Creating Shared Value?

How it helps shape our Purpose

Creating Shared Value (CSV) is at the heart of Nestlé’s approach to achieving our purpose: to unlock the power of food to enhance quality of life for everyone, today and for generations to come. We have sought to build our business approach on decisions that are not just good for us and our shareholders, but for society and the planet as well.

Our positive impact on society is focused 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.

This commitment is fundamentally rooted in who we are, and it starts with our incredible people at Nestlé Canada. Their passion, dedication and desire to do more and do better ultimately drives our business forward. And that’s always been our approach to business - it’s CSV that brings business and society together for a common good.

We’re the world’s largest producer of food and beverage and we recognize the role that we can play in having significant positive outcomes. Our work is guided by our desire to contribute to nutritious and sustainable diets, to help protect, renew and restore the environment, to help strengthen communities and to operate responsibly.
