Nestlé supports the UN’s LGBTI Standards of Conduct for Business

Jun 1, 2018


Diversity & inclusion is an integral part of Nestlé’s culture. It is one of the ways to bring our purpose – enhancing quality of life and contributing to a healthier future – and values to life. Therefore, we are publicly supporting the United Nations Standards of Conduct to support the business community in tackling discrimination against lesbian, gay, bi, trans and intersex (LGBTI) people.

Nestlé’s values are rooted in respect. This means respect for ourselves and for others, respect for diversity, and respect for the future. As a global and multicultural company, we are committed to promoting the inclusion of all communities into our workforce.

We are raising awareness about LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, +) and collaborating with external networks, whilst respecting the legislative environments within which we operate.

"We strive to promote a culture of respect and equality in our workplace,” said Peter Vogt, Global Head of Human Resources. "Diversity and inclusion is an integral part of our culture, and it is one of the ways we bring our values to life."

Supporting the UN’s LGBTI Standards of Conduct is an important step, but we know that there is still more to do. We will continue to extend and embed diversity and inclusion into all aspects of the company in the years to come.
