Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) and Corporate Citizenship

At NIQ, we aim to be a role model by managing key environmental, social, and governance risks and opportunities across the value chain to positively impact communities and the environment and create sustainable growth.

We are continuously improving our culture of meaning and connection by inspiring employees to work together and to give back to our communities and environment through our People & Planet Program. There are four pillars of the program, including:

Food equity

Deliver pioneering insights through NIQ data to increase access to nutritious food and support humanitarian initiatives to promote food equity.

Climate justice

Be transparent with all stakeholders on the climate-related impacts of company activities and commit to mitigating material climate-related risks.


Support initiatives that ensure all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development.

Economic empowerment

Promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth and decent work for all. Ensure women’s full and effective participation in the workforce.
