Progress against our commitments

Nestlé’s key performance indicators (KPIs) provide a focus for measuring and reporting Creating Shared Value, sustainability and compliance. This performance summary forms part of our communication on progress for the United Nations Global Compact Principles. Unless otherwise stated, performance indicators are for the year ending 31 December 2017. To provide transparency for our stakeholders, we have indicated the correlation between our KPIs, our commitments and Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) indicators in the table below. The references in the GRI column relate to the applicable indicator from the Global Reporting Initiative G4 guidelines.

We report against GRI G4 guidelines and indicators, in line with the material issues. These issues are identified through our stakeholder engagement process and shape our public commitments.
