Mondelēz highlights sustainability and wellbeing progress

Mondelēz International has highlighted its progress in meeting its sustainability and wellbeing goals in a new report.

The report outlines the confectionery giant’s ongoing commitment to lead the future of snacking by leveraging its global scale to deliver positive change.

The ‘Snacking Made Right’ report includes Mondelēz International’s signature sustainable sourcing programmes and approaches driven by the company’s purpose – to empower people to snack right by providing the right snack, for the right moment, made the right way.

“As we collectively manage the global impact of COVID-19, now more than ever is the time for companies to do what’s right and drive sustainable business growth at scale,” said Dirk Van de Put, Chairman and CEO of Mondelēz International.

“At Mondelez International, our purpose-driven approach to sustainability and well-being is focused on reducing our impact on the environment and creating a positive impact on society as part of our mission to lead the future of snacking by delivering the right snack, for the right moment, made the right way.

“I’m proud of the significant progress we’ve made in 2019 and believe our 2025 Snacking Made Right goals are the right goals to focus on for the future,” said Van de Put.
