By: Richard Welford | 6 years 1 month ago | Permalink
I found this very interesting debate about Nestle's new bottled water that it says is creating shared value. The argument is that bottled water can create societal benefits through encouraging people to drink water rather than sugary drinks and hence improve health.

By: Richard Welford | 6 years 1 month ago | Permalink
