Mondelēz International has published its 2018 Impact Progress Report, announcing significant progress against its 2020 Impact Goals. The report highlights how the company met a major well-being target, achieving 15 percent of net revenue from portion control snacks, two years ahead of expectations. This significant progress demonstrates the company’s mission to lead the future of snacking by creating snacks the right way for both people and planet.
The report also describes advancements against Mondelēz International’s 2020 sustainable agriculture and environmental footprint goals to combat deforestation while protecting land rights and human rights and scale these efforts in areas where they can have the greatest positive impact. In addition to sourcing 43 percent of cocoa for Chocolate brands through the company’s signature cocoa sustainability program, Cocoa Life, in 2018, the company has continued to play a significant role in creating a sustainable palm oil supply chain by accelerating action against plantation companies contributing to deforestation.
“We believe that consumers should not have to choose between snacking and eating right, or to worry about the impact their snacking choices have on the world and their communities,” said Dirk Van de Put, Chairman and CEO of Mondelēz International. “Our company is playing a significant role in making snacking both sustainable and mindful by creating a future where people and planet thrive, and evolving our portfolio to inspire mindful snacking habits. I’m proud of our progress in 2018, particularly in well-being snacks where we were able to reach a major goal ahead of schedule.”
Emre Olcer, SEA President of Mondelēz International, added, “Southeast Asia presents an unprecedented opportunity for change with its resources, talented population and cultural diversity. We are proud to be spearheading efforts to build a sustainable future. Especially our Joy Schools and Cocoa Life programs have a great footprint in SEA and allow us to work together with key partners to empower communities toward this common goal. Seeing the progress we’ve made on the ground gives us the confidence that we are on the right path to influencing positive change.”
Mondelēz International focuses its efforts on areas where it can have the greatest impact and drive meaningful change at scale in sustainability and mindful snacking. Following are highlights of the company’s 2018 progress:
- Sustainable Snacking: creating a future where people and planet thrive by creating resilient ingredient supply chains, reducing environmental impact and developing zero-net waste packaging.
- Mindful Snacking: rethinking the experience of snacking; evolving the product portfolio with more options; inspiring mindful snacking habits that focus on savoring each bite and mobilising innovative partnerships for impact.
