The main focus of this latest edition is the 2012 UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20). The event marked a crossroad for sustainable development and set the sustainability agenda for the next decade. Therefore, the world expected that a strong call for responsible and sustainable business practices – as covered by the United Nations Global Compact – would emerge as a result. The aim of this publication is to provide a global overview of the achievements of the Global Compact. It offers proactive and in-depth information on key sustainability issues to stakeholders all around the world and promotes unique and comprehensive knowledge exchange and learning in the spirit of the Global Compact principles.



Meeting the global water challenge

As the world’s largest food and beverage company, Nestlé depends on reliable access to clean water at every level in order to maintain our ability to meet consumers’ needs. Our long-term success depends on effective management of water resources that supply our everyday business operations and support the livelihoods of suppliers and consumers. We apply a lifecycle approach to assess the impacts of our own operations and those along the wider value chain from farmer to consumer, thereby creating shared value to both Nestlé and society.
