Respect for the rights of the people we employ, do business with or otherwise interact with is the fundamental way that Nestlé operates. This respect is at the core of Nestlé’s Corporate Business Principles and is aligned with the UN Guiding Principles Reporting Framework. Nestlé Cares provides our employees the opportunity to engage and assist underprivileged communities through their direct and indirect participation. The activities primarily support and address the needs of local communities based on Nestlé Creating Shared Value pillars. Employee participation, while encouraged, is voluntary and remains an employee decision.
