Nestlé has developed performance indicators to provide a focus for measuring and reporting Creating Shared Value, sustainability and compliance. This performance summary forms part of our communication on progress regarding the United Nations Global Compact Principles. Unless stated otherwise, performance indicators are for the year ending 31 December 2013. The references in the GRI column are to the applicable indicator from the Global Reporting Initiative G3.1 guidelines.
Nestlé is all about quality of life and nutrition – that is what we live for as a company. But the relevance of that is the value that it creates: for consumers, for society and for our business – driving competitive advantage and R&D, being ahead of the curve, and building our brand value.”
We believe that for a company to be successful over the long term and create value for shareholders, it must create value for society. At Nestlé, this means creating superior, long-term value for shareholders by offering products and services that help people improve their nutrition, health and wellness. Henri Nestlé founded the Company in 1866 on the success of a life-saving infant cereal and today, we aim to enhance lives by offering healthier and tastier food and beverage choices for all stages of life.
