DEVELOPPEMENT DURABLE
Sustainable in a Generation

Le monde fait face à d'importants challenges.

La pauvreté, la pénurie hydrique, le changement climatique et de nombreuses problématiques sociales ou environnementales freinent le potentiel des communautés et des entreprises.

Chez Mars, nous croyons qu'il est grand temps d'avoir de nouvelles approches pour affronter ces défis – une approche qui s'appuie sur ce que nous avons mis en oeuvre au sein de nos opérations directes depuis de nombreuses années et qui étend désormais nos ambitions à l'ensemble de notre chaîne de valeur –. 
C'est pourquoi nous lançons notre plan "Sustainable in a Generation" – un plan de croissance bénéfique pour les populations, la planète et pour notre entreprise. Le plan établit de nouveaux objectifs ambitieux autour de trois domaines clés: une planète saine, la prospérité des populations et la promotion de la sante et du bien-être. En savoir plus

Une planète plus saine

Notre objectif est de reduire nos impacts environnementaux, en accord avec ce que les connaissances scientifiques indiquent être nécessaire pour préserver la santé de la planète. Les principaux piliers de notre ambition se concentrent sur l’action sur le climat, la disponibilité de l’eau et la gestion de l’utilisation des sols.

  • Eliminer la consommation d’eau en excès des niveaux durables dans notre chaines de valeur.

Faire prospérer les populations

Nous avons pour ambition d'améliorer la vie professionnelle d’1 million de personnes dans nos chaines de valeurs et de leur permettre de prospérer.

Promouvoir la santé et le bien-être

En faisant progresser la science et l’innovation, en optimisant le profil nutritionnel de nos produits, de façon à soutenir des modes de vie plus sains et actifs pour les consommateurs et pour les animaux de compagnie.

Moy Wind Farm

The energy it takes to make MARS® bars, WHISKAS® cat food, EXTRA® gum and UNCLE BEN’S® rice in the U.K. is now provided by a new wind farm in Moy, Scotland. Through a partnership with Eneco U.K., the 20-turbine wind farm, located just south of Inverness in the Scottish Highlands, will generate renewable electricity equivalent to the electricity used by all 12 Mars U.S. sites.

Mars' Farmer Income Lab

Many smallholder farms are family businesses and, like Mars as a family-owned business, we want them to be successful for generations to come. Too many of them are not thriving today and although Mars typically does not purchase raw materials directly from farmers, we recognize that helping lift smallholder farmers out of poverty is both the right thing to do and vital for the long-term sustainability of our supply chains.

The Challenge We Face

“At Mars, our ambition is that those working across our extended supply chains should earn sufficient income to maintain a decent standard of living.”

How Our Plan is Different

Doing what’s right,
not just doing better
Our goals are set on the basis of scientific data and The Five Principles that guide our business: Quality, Responsibility, Mutuality, Efficiency and Freedom. Together, these tell us that to operate a sustainable global business we must move beyond incremental improvements to unlock systemic changes that benefit people and the planet.
A business strategy built on
win–win relationships
We’ve built a clear roadmap based on strong and mutual returns. We know we can’t grow and prosper unless the planet, people and communities on which we rely are healthy and thriving.
Uncommon collaborations
We recognize that solutions and impact at scale require collaboration. We’re building new partnerships and action-oriented coalitions to find and scale breakthrough solutions to sustainable growth.

As Mars sets new goals through the Sustainable in a Generation Plan, we can look back with pride at the steps we’ve already taken and the milestones we’ve already achieved towards sustainability.
