Mars Incorporated

Based on commonly referenced estimates of what is necessary to prevent dangerous levels of climate change, Mars has committed to make its operations ‘Sustainable in a Generation’ by eliminating fossil fuel energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, minimizing its impact on water quality and availability, and mitigating the impacts of waste by 2040. They have set an interim target to reduce operational emissions by 25 percent by 2015 in absolute terms, from a 2007 baseline.  To learn more about Mars’ Sustainable in a Generation approach and goals, click here

“Mars is committed to reducing and eventually eliminating our greenhouse gas emissions, in absolute terms, because this is the right thing to do. Climate change has implications for the production of agricultural ingredients from corn to cocoa, and addressing it requires changes to the way we source materials and manufacture our products,” said Brad Figel, vice president of public affairs, Mars North America. “Therefore it is imperative we continue to improve sustainability in our approach to business, as well as the way we create policy, which is why it is important for us to make our voice heard through BICEP in encouraging policymakers to take action now.”
