Creating Shared Value Report

A leader in corporate citizenship

Creating Shared Value is a basic principle of Nestlé Waters North America’s business strategy that we believe is a requirement for the long-term sustainability of our business. We recognize the importance of creating value for a broad spectrum of stakeholders – from customers, to employees and to society as a whole. We believe transparency is critical to building trust, and reporting is one way we engage in dialogue with stakeholders.

We publish our Creating Shared Value Report every two years, starting with our first report in 2008. This is our third edition.

The 2012 Creating Shared Value Report is organized around four overarching principles, nine supporting goals and 17 related performance targets, all of which are aimed at addressing our most material issues. The report also includes a progress update on the goals we established in 2010, most of which have been met or are on the road to being fulfilled.
