The long-term ambitions: to help 50 million children to lead healthier lives; help to improve 30 million livelihoods in communities directly connected to our business activities; and strive for zero environmental impact in our operations.
We continue our work to bring societal commitments to life through three impact areas: individuals and families, our communities, and the planet. One example is a global commitment to reduce the sugar we add in our products by 5% by 2020. In Europe alone, reaching this target will mean we will remove at least 18000 tonnes of sugar from products.
This and other examples come together in our report ‘Nestlé in society: Creating Shared Value and meeting our commitments 2016’. It details our 42 Nestlé in society commitments a>, to be achieved by 2020, the progress we’ve made and our ambitions for the future, all of which helped us top the 2016 Dow Jones Sustainability Index.
