Mondelēz has eliminated 53,500 tonnes of packaging, achieving 80 percent of its 2020 goal, according to company's 2017 Impact For Growth Progress Report.
Advancements in 2020 environmental sustainability targets developed to reduce CO2 emissions, water usage, waste and packaging including:
- Added healthy lifestyle programs in seven new countries, bringing nutrition education, active play and access to fresh foods to under-served children and their families
- More than 12 percent of revenue from individually wrapped portion control snacks that are 200 calories or less; on target to achieve 2020 goal of 15 percent
The company report details progress against sustainable agriculture and environmental footprint goals, as well as global expansion of healthy lifestyle and nutrition programs in at risk communities. It also illustrates how the company’s impact programs align with and support the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).
“Having a positive impact on our planet and the communities we do business in is core to who we are as a company,” said Dirk Van de Put, Chairman and CEO, Mondelez International. “Today, we’re producing snacks more sustainably, with less energy, water and waste; and sourcing our key ingredients in ways that reduce deforestation in our supply chain. We’re empowering farmers and investing in community programs that help improve the well-being of children and their families.”
Mondelēz International’s Impact For Growth platform builds on its legacy of delivering positive impact in four key areas: sustainability, well-being snacks, safety and community.
