INDONESIA COCOA TECH CENTER OPENING

Investing in global center for sustainable cocoa farming solutions. We are proud to announce the formal opening of our state-of-the-art cocoa crop science technical center in Pasuruan, Indonesia. The center is the new home for our global cocoa crop science team and the fourth technical center in the AMEA region. It enables Mondelēz International to develop and promote better cocoa farming practices, and continue ongoing work with farming communities, suppliers and partners around the world. The center's unveiling represents an important step in our mission to lead the future of snacking by securing a sustainable future for high-quality cocoa, so consumers can enjoy the right snack, for the right moment, made the right way. As one of the world’s largest buyers of cocoa for chocolate, the sustainability of the cocoa farming industry is key to Mondelēz International’s long-term growth in Asia and around the world. “Cocoa is at the heart of chocolate, and demand is growing, with Asia set to become the second-largest consumer of cocoa ingredients. Mondelēz International is determined to meet that demand in the right way by creating a thriving cocoa sector,” said Maurizio Brusadelli, Executive Vice President and President, Asia, Middle East and Africa for Mondelēz International. “Consumers also expect more from their favorite brands like Cadbury Dairy Milk and Milka chocolate. People want delicious snacks they feel good about eating, know where ingredients come from and produced in ways that are better for the environment and communities. We need to secure a sustainable future for high-quality cocoa and other raw materials we use to create the snacks our consumers love. “We’re on a mission to drive positive change by creating a future of sustainable snacking and that includes using our global scale to create meaningful, lasting impact,” said Rob Hargrove, Executive Vice President, Research, Development and Quality for Mondelēz International. “The Pasuruan Cocoa Technical Center is our global home for cocoa crop science initiatives. It brings local and international cocoa crop science experts together with farmers and suppliers in the cocoa growing areas of Sulawesi, Sumatra, and East Java. Our scientists can go from the labs at the center to field sites where we have research collaborations and on-farm activities through Cocoa Life.” The center's focus on cocoa crop science and technical solutions that support high-yielding, sustainable and resilient farming practices is a clear commitment to the company's 2025 goal of sourcing 100 per cent of cocoa for chocolate through Cocoa Life. The company is on track to meet that target with 63 per cent of cocoa for its chocolate brands currently sourced through Cocoa Life.

ADVANCING A FOREST POSITIVE FUTURE

Proud member of new Forest Positive Coalition of Action. As part of Climate Week 2020, The Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) launched the Forest Positive Coalition of Action, where seventeen global consumer goods brands, retailers and manufacturers will work together to accelerate systemic efforts to remove deforestation, forest degradation and conversion from the key commodity supply chains. As a participant, Mondelēz International commits to engagement with both producer governments and developed nation governments on commodity areas: soy, palm oil and paper, pulp and fiber-based packaging with the ambition to utilize collective reach and knowledge, global networks and resources, to engage and collaborate with producers, suppliers and traders, as well as governments and civil society, to advocate for forest positive solutions. As part of the Forest Positive Coalition of Action, we commit to working constructively with governments – both in producer nations and developed nations – to put in place practical measures to support a forest positive future. The Coalition will advocate and support practices to change behaviors and processes at a macro-level to support global forests and not one specific area. Our commitments include: - Engaging with suppliers and traders to ask they implement Forest Positive actions across their entire commodity operations; - Joining forces to address forest conservation challenges in key production landscapes; - Engaging governments and stakeholders to create an enabling environment for forest conservation; - Ensuring transparency and accountability by regularly reporting on progress.

JOINING NEW PLASTICS ECONOMY INITIATIVE AND UK PLASTICS PACT

Committing to tackling plastic waste to reduce our impact on people and the planet. Mondelēz International have joined two leading initiatives focused on tackling plastic waste and pollution, as we accelerate our efforts to reduce our impact on people and the planet. We are now a signatory of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s New Plastics Economy Global Commitment, as well as a participant in the New Plastics Economy Initiative, and a member of the UK Plastics Pact. The initiatives share a collective ambition to address plastic waste and pollution at its source, by moving toward a circular economy where plastic stays in the economy and out of the environment. The announcement marks an important step forward in Mondelēz International’s ambition to create positive impact for people and planet and achieve zero-net waste packaging. Joining these initiatives furthers Mondelēz International’s 2025 sustainability goals which are focused on making snacks with less energy, water and waste. These goals are designed to address climate change in a meaningful way and are based on an end-to-end, science-based approach to reducing the company’s carbon footprint, including reducing absolute CO2 emissions from manufacturing and addressing deforestation in key raw material supply chains.
