How Mars Is Building Hope Through Marine Stewardship
By FRANK E. MARS, Chairman of the Board
Why Chairman of the Board Frank E. Mars believes our success as a business – and that of our global economy and communities – depends on our oceans’ health.
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.
