Our company and Associates have been guided by our Five Principles of Quality, Responsibility, Mutuality, Efficiency and Freedom for generations.
Of course, most businesses consider quality, responsibility, and efficiency to be important. What distinguishes Mars is how we embed these Principles in our approach to business, and commit to doing business in ways that create mutual benefits for all those involved in our success. In addition, we believe that as a private, family-owned business, we have more freedom than others to make long-term investments in tackling the grand challenges facing our business and planet, such as climate change and food security. We support measures to address these challenges through our work on scientific research and discovery.
By working with others, including our customers, suppliers, governments, nongovernmental organizations, industry, academia and research centers, we can help create a successful future for all.
