Zug, Switzerland, June 4, 2009 - ASSET4 AG today announced that Nestlé is now using ASSET4 to benchmark its environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance. Nestlé’s investor relations department relies on the ASSET4 ESG database and analysis tools to evaluate Nestlé against its peers and the entire ASSET4 universe covering more than 2,600 global companies.

"Nestlé has a fundamental commitment to improving its ESG performance through what we call, ‘Creating Shared Value,’ which ties long-term business success and the creation of shareholder value to the creation of value for society at large." said Roddy Child-Villiers, Nestlé’s head of Investor Relations. "Our focus is on improving our own actions, commitments and communication in the areas of sustainability and corporate governance, but it is also helpful to see how we compare to our peers and other industry leaders. ASSET4 helps us do this by showing where we stand and allowing us to move forward more effectively and efficiently."

"Nestlé is truly a leader in integrating sustainability into its basic business model, and we are proud that they chose ASSET4 to support their ongoing evaluation of their environmental, social and governance performance," said Peter Ohnemus, ASSET4 President and CEO. "The ASSET4 ESG information framework enables our corporate clients to focus on the level of information they require. With a few clicks of the mouse, clients can benchmark how they perform in regard to specific key performance indicators, such as water use reduction or from an overall extra-financial perspective. ASSET4 is committed to providing corporations and professional investors the information and analysis tools necessary to monitor, evaluate and benchmark the ESG performance of today’s leading global companies, like Nestlé."
