Sustainability

Contributing positively to our environment and local communities is critical to the way we do business at Mars - including our products, brands and operations. We understand that our company's social, environmental and economic values and practices impact where we do business and how we operate, particularly given the scope and scale of the global environmental challenges.


We recognize that our long-term economic growth is inter-linked with our ability to adhere to the definition of sustainability produced by the UN World Commission on Environment and Development in 1987. It defined sustainability as "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. "Based on the foundation of our Five Principles - Quality, Responsibility, Mutuality, Efficiency and Freedom - we believe that our commitment to sustainability builds on our long-standing ethical commitment to the individual and the larger community. Our fundamental belief is that the only lasting success is a shared success, and this means success across the social, economic and environmental spectrum.


Mars China believes strongly that we can indeed make a difference by integrating Sustainability into all elements of our business. Our conviction is that, now more than ever, we will need to embed environmental, social and resource preservation issues and targets within our core business. 


Mars China has been championing various Sustainability programs in the past. Our aim is to make a difference in the areas which we have the most expertise, relevance and where we believe we can make the most significant impact.
