CSV is integrated into the entire Nestle business and is
thus the responsibility of each and every employee and not just a single
department. The Company has formed a CSV Council, which is composed of
representatives from all Business Units and Shared Services Units. The council was formed in January 2010 under
the stewardship of the Corporate Affairs Department.
