Entries open for CHF 500k Nestlé Creating Shared Value Prize

Nominations have opened for the 2016 Nestlé Creating Shared Value Prize. The winners in this biannual prize win up to CHF 500,000.

The prize is designed to reward the best examples of “Creating Shared Value” (CSV) initiatives worldwide and to encourage others to adopt this approach. These initiatives should take a business-oriented approach in addressing challenges in nutrition, water or rural development.

The judges look for entries that are innovative, apply environmentally sustainable practices and, having demonstrated results on a small scale, can be scaled up viably to help improve more people’s lives.
