Letter From Our CEO
Beginning in 1976, when our company first introduced Americans to bottled water through the Perrier® brand, we have grown to be the largest bottled water company in the U.S. and Canada, with 15 unique brands, 28 facilities, and 7,500 employees. We built our company on the premise that success lies in being a responsible leader by creating value for consumers, communities, employees, and other key stakeholders.
Creating Shared Value
At Nestlé, we describe this as Creating Shared Value – a fundamental part of our way of doing business. I believe this report reflects how we go beyond incremental steps and think bigger about ways we can be a strong advocate for water, minimize our environmental impact, and make a positive impact on our communities.
Transparency and Collaboration
We continually seek ways to improve how we operate, as well as how we engage with – and learn from – our neighbors and stakeholders. Reporting on our sustainability and corporate citizenship is one avenue, which we will continue doing every two years. Equally important is collaboration with others to create 21st-century solutions to address the broader societal issues, especially improved recycling in North America.

I invite you to review this website to learn more about what the road ahead entails.
