Sustainability is key to mutuality — what better way to ensure benefits for all than protecting the earth’s natural resources? Large companies like Mars can make a real difference by working with suppliers, partners, retail customers and consumers to act sustainably, and we are proud to do so.
We’re starting with our direct operations, focusing first on our factories and offices. Working from robust scientific data, we have set ambitious goals to make these operations Sustainable in a Generation.
We’re 100-percent serious about renewable energy. As a member of RE100 — an initiative that encourages corporations to power their operations completely with renewable energy — and we are increasing our use of renewable energy every year. We also work to encourage governments around the world to take the development of renewable energy sources as seriously as we do.

We all share the same air. That’s why we applaud a 2014 agreement between China and the U.S. that committed to reducing emissions in both countries — only by working together can we protect our planet.
