Nestlé, in order to ensure a successful, sustainable business, has embraced the concept of Creating Shared Value (CSV). Through a number of efforts such as the CSV Forum, the creation of the CSV advisory board, and various programs with its stakeholders, Nestle is showing its strong commitment to this ideal.
