Global Responsibility & Sustainability
Environmental, social and governance considerations and impacts are woven throughout everything we do, every day. We are committed to sharing our continuous improvement efforts through external reporting to our stakeholders.
Through Nielsen Cares, our associates commit their time, talent and skills for good, creating shared value in our communities and helping to solve some of the world’s biggest social challenges through volunteering.
Nielsen measures the behavior of consumers in more than 100 countries, and we believe data can be leveraged to advance social good by sharing consumer insights and data with the world, including nonprofits and academic researchers, to make a difference. Our expertise helps nonprofits maximize their impact through improved outreach, messaging, effectiveness and efficiency.
Through Nielsen Green, we continuously identify and advocate for sustainable options by driving operational efficiencies, all in an effort to manage and reduce Nielsen’s environmental footprint.
