Its member companies have combined sales of EUR 3.5 trillion and directly employ nearly 10 million people, with a further 90 million related jobs estimated along the value chain. It is governed by its Board of Directors, which comprises more than 50 manufacturer and retailer CEOs. For more information, please visit:


With the average life expectancy of people to break 90 years by 2030, we can see how significant strides have been made in increasing life expectancy over the last few decades. However, we must also acknowledge that more efforts are needed to address the many different persistent and emerging health issues. At the CGF, we know our members are committed to helping address these challenges and play a positive and proactive role. As a collective, we are dedicated to helping our consumers, colleagues, their families and the communities we work in to live healthier lives. Under the umbrella of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we want to promote healthy lives and wellbeing at all ages. And, with guidance from the CGF’s Board and Health & Wellness Steering Committee, the Health & Wellness Pillar has a framework of Resolutions and Commitments for collective industry action that are designed to empower people and address issues where we can have the biggest, positive impact. However, many companies need support and advice on how and where to get started. As such, in order to help all our members with implementation, we must continue to provide support, share best practices and engage with key external stakeholders. Through this booklet, which shares success stories of how our members are implementing our commitments and offering solutions that provide long-term benefits for both people and their businesses, we hope to inspire others to collaborate and join us on this journey. Our goals are long term and we do not yet have all the solutions, but our committee and working groups have a common vision to support people to achieve their health and wellness goals. By sharing such success stories and best practices, we can help our entire industry understand what works, why it works and how to get started. We trust you will benefit from the stories on offer and we expect to add further stories in due course. We also welcome further collaboration on anticipating and meeting changing consumer health and wellness needs. Do reach out if you would like to get involved or to share your story.
