Over one million women in Asian and African farming communities have been empowered through their work with Nestlé, according to a new report. Launched to coincide with International Women’s Day, the annual Nestlé in society Creating Shared Value report also sets out the company’s progress during 2015 in the area of gender balance, noting that 34 percent of leadership positions worldwide are held by women.

“We have always believed that in order to prosper we need the communities we serve and in which we operate to prosper as well,” says Nestlé chairman Peter Brabeck-Letmathe. “Our 39 commitments go beyond compliance and are based on common sense values we believe in, that form the foundation upon which we build our actions in Creating Shared Value.”

The Nestlé in society report, which is published alongside the group’s 2015 Annual Report, gives insights into the company’s progress in the areas of nutrition, water and environmental and social sustainability.
