FTSE4Good BMS Verification

As set out in the FTSE4Good BMS Criteria, once a BMS manufacturer meets the FTSE4Good Index inclusion criteria and enters the index it is subject to a verification assessment.

The first FTSE4Good BMS verification was carried out by PwC on Nestlé’s head office in Switzerland as well as its operations in two countries, India and Zambia. The verification assessment was funded by FTSE together with the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) and was also informed through input from a range of organisations. Subsequently a multi-stakeholder workshop was held to review the results and the process itself. Below are links to the resulting documents.
