CEO of Mars Responds to Civil Unrest at the Nation’s Capital

By GRANT. F. REID, CEO, Mars

"I am appalled by the attack on the nation’s Capitol yesterday and other incidents of violence in cities across the country. The divisiveness and violence must end, and peace must be restored. Despite our differences, it is time for us to unite behind our democratic processes and for all elected leaders to support a peaceful transition – for the good of all Americans."

Sustainability

Mars is transforming the way we do business and innovating to drive positive change for people and the planet. We started in 2017, by launching Our Sustainable in a Generation Plan. With an initial $1 billion investment, we are focusing on three key areas — Healthy Planet, Thriving People and Nourishing Wellbeing. We have made meaningful progress to curb our environmental impact, improve lives in the workplaces, supply chains and communities where we work and help billions of people and their pets lead healthier, happier lives.
