“We appreciate the government’s steps as a result of which Pakistan has been listed by the World Bank as among the ‘Top-20 Improvers in Ease of Doing Business 2020’. This is a clear reflection of the government’s commitment to improve competitiveness by increasing support for the development of the private sector, reducing regulatory and administrative burden on enterprises,” he said.
Nestlé has been contributing to improve the lives of the people of the communities including Sheikhupura. Nestlé Chaunsa Project is one of the great examples of helping and building communities. While these actions have helped to improve the livelihoods of the local farmers, other developments are helping to improve the living standards of the communities in the area. For example, Nestlé has set up clean and safe drinking water facilities in the area which is providing clean drinking water to more than 30,000 people daily.
Nestlé Sheikhupura Factory is also the first Nestlé site in the world to receive the Alliance for Water Steward Ship certification which demonstrates effective and responsible use of freshwater in a socially, economically and environmentally beneficial manner.
All of these various initiatives are part of the approach that Nestlé’s operates in a way that generate long-term benefits for both company and community.
