Nestlé Pakistan, as part of its global and local obligations, believes in Creating Shared Value (CSV) for the communities in which it works and lives. Pakistan is a developing economy and more than 60% of the population lives in the rural areas. There is a huge potential for rural development, particularly in the livestock sector where companies like Nestlé are adding real value for improving the quality of life for rural communities.
At Nestlé, social responsibility does not end with a few philanthropic activities. Instead, CSV is embedded in our business model; where direct engagement and support to communities is extended across the value chain. This adds value to the business and supports socioeconomic development for the communities. Additionally, ethical business practices, transparency and consumer trust – based on high quality products with a focus on Nutrition, Health and Wellness – remains the hallmark of our core business.
The company is committed to the stakeholders and the communities for mutual growth and sustainability. Based on the strong foundations of compliance and sustainable business practices, this is the Nestlé way of doing business. Nestlé Pakistan is also a signatory to the UN Global Compact for Ethical Business.
The key focus areas for Nestlé Pakistan’s Creating Shared Value (CSV) programmes are as follows:
- Environmental Sustainability
- Rural Development
- Our People
