Mondelez International Sustainability Commitments
The Indonesia Cocoa Tech 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.
As part of a longterm commitment to reduce environmental impact, the company set 2025 packaging innovation targets to ensure 100% of packaging is designed to be recycled, contains on-pack recycling information and contributes to the company’s commitment to reduce CO2 emissions. Today, 93 percent of the company’s total packaging, including both plastic and non-plastic, is designed to be recycled. The New Plastics Economy Global Commitment has set ambitious 2025 targets which Mondelēz International, along with signatories from government, business and other organizations, has formally endorsed. As part of the Global Commitment, Mondelēz International will work towards the following: Take action to eliminate problematic or unnecessary plastic packaging by 2025 100% of plastic packaging to be reusable or recyclable Use 5% recycled content (by weight) across all plastic packaging used Take action to move from single-use towards reuse models where relevant As a member of the UK Plastics Pact, which is the first in a global network of Pacts which are aligned with, and support the New Plastics Economy initiative, Mondelēz International commits to working towards delivering the UK Plastics Pact 2025 targets by: Eliminating unnecessary and problematic packaging and plastic products Ensuring all plastic packaging is recyclable in practice Using recycled plastic in our packaging wherever possible 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.
SETTING OUR NEW EMISSIONS GOAL
Already on track to reduce emissions across our manufacturing operations by 15 percent by the end of 2020, this expanded commitment will result in a further 10 percent emissions reduction across our value chain, over and above the impact of business growth from farm to shelf by 2025, compared to a 2018 baseline.
