Corporate Social Responsibility is about how companies manage the business processes to produce an overall positive impact on society. Also you could say that it is a company’s sense of responsibility towards the community and environment in which it operates.
Nestlé believes that for a company to be successful in the long term and create value for its shareholders, it must also create value for society. At Nestlé this begins with the creation of superior long term value for shareholders by offering products and services that help people improve their nutrition, health and wellness. This is what they call Creating Shared Value.
Creating shared value begins with the understanding that for Nestlé to succeed over the long term, the communities we serve must also be succeeded. It explains how businesses can create competitive advantage, which in turn will deliver better returns for shareholders, through actions that substantially address a social or environmental challenge.
Nestlé focuses on six point, which are the following: -nutrition. – CSV, water. – Rural development. – environment. – sourcing. And human rights. Now we will explain these six points. Starting with nutrition: Nestlé plays an important role in offering the right kind of products and helping consumers make the right nutritional choices. The second is CSV- Water.

This is why nestle is working hard to ensure they source raw materials in a responsible and sustainable way.
