All About Mars
Mars has been proudly family owned for over 100 years. It’s this independence that gives us the gift of freedom to think in generations, not quarters, so we can invest in the long-term future of our business, our people and the planet — all guided by our enduring Principles.
We believe the world we want tomorrow starts with how we do business today. Our bold ambitions must be matched with actions today from our 130,000 Associates in 80 countries around the world. Some of our current initiatives are:
- Investing $1 billion over the next several years to become sustainable in a generation
- Working to improve the wellbeing for families around the world
- Leveraging and sharing our research to create a better world for pets
Every day we are one step closer to the world we want tomorrow, through our steadfast commitment to action today.
Putting Our Principles Into Practice
Our business and the actions we take every day are founded on The Five Principles. They’re at the heart of everything we do, no matter what — making sure we don’t just talk about a better future, but work towards it every day.
The Mars Compass Charts Our Course Forward
We keep one eye firmly on the future, by using the Mars Compass to guide our long-term strategy and day-to-day decisions. Using these four quadrants helps us make the right choices—so we can achieve near-term results without compromising our values.
