DOING OUR PART FOR PEOPLE AND THE PLANET

At Mars, we believe it’s our responsibility to help create a safe, healthy, sustainable world for our Associates and the communities where we operate.

PRINCIPLES IN ACTION

The Five Principles are who we are — they inform, color and flavor everything we do here. Each year, we share with you some of the steps we’ve taken to move our business forward toward a more sustainable future.

Read more about how we put our Principles into Action across our areas of business.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Part of what makes Mars such a friendly and welcoming company is our commitment to creating positive change in the places where our offices and factories are located. We’re working together with our neighbors and our communities to build a better world, starting in our own backyard.

MARKETING PRINCIPLES

We have so many different brands we love to share with you. The variety of these brands gives us a great platform for reaching out and connecting with consumers all over the world. Equally important is that we are communicating about our brands responsibly.

SUPPLIER PAYMENT PRINCIPLES

In 2017, Mars Australia signed up as a signatory company to the Australian Supplier Payment Code. This code, developed by the Business Council of Australia, is a voluntary, industry-led initiative which commits signatory companies to pay eligible Australian small business suppliers within 30 days of receipt of a correct invoice. In some cases, this will more than halve payment times and help improve the viability and vitality of small business and enhance the ability of business to create jobs.

For more information, please contact your local Mars representative, or refer to the Business Council of Australia’s website:
