Nestle has a notorious reputation for being one of the most corrupt corporations in the world, and is the target of the worlds longest running boycott. Nestle continuously breaches international marketing standards, most notably in their targeting of pregnant and breastfeeding women in which they spread false information and gave women in underserved communities week supplies of baby formula (enough to induce the termination of breastmilk production) so that the women were forced to buy more of Nestle's formula after their breasts no longer produced milk by the time the free supply was used. Nestle attempts to stake claim to community water resources across North America, destroying streams, aquifers and wildlife. They are the world's 3rd most plastic polluter, are responsible for mass deforestation for cocoa and palm oil use which destroys the Orangutan habitat. They are one of the worst perpetrators of human rights violations including failing to stop child labor in their cocoa fields, and Brazilian slave labor on their cocoa plantations. They scored an 11.8/100 on their supply chain practices in China. Nestle does test on animals. They also undermine local control of water supplies in communities, then promote sales of bottled water there to turn a profit, and have shown no evidence of addressing the findings of nanoparticles in their baby formula, which can bioaccumulate in children from infancy and pose a threat to human health. Additionally, Nestle grossly violated human rights and experiment laws by testing their baby formula on 75 premature babies in India. In 2015, Nestle rejected Baby Milk Action's 4-point plan (submitted in 2001) to address the boycott filed against them for their treatment of breastfeeding women and causing countless infant deaths. They also pay only $200/year to pump fresh water out of Flint, Michigan while it's citizens still have no access to clean water. Their Lighthouse accessibility score is 100/100.
