Nestlé USA

Serafina Keltner-McNeil
Spring 2021

I was interested in learning more about Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and sustainability efforts in a large company, leading me to my partnership with the Corporate Affairs team at Nestlé USA. I worked as a Project Management Intern this Spring, primarily tracking the US application and adherence to a set of commitments entitled the Creating Shared Value commitments, released every year by Nestlé Global in Switzerland. I had the chance to interview commitment owners and stakeholders across departments and operating companies, diving deeper into the topics of sustainable sourcing, environmental practices, net-zero emissions, and nutrition, health, & wellness. Ultimately, I produced an internal tracker with the US commitment updates for 2020.
