The launch of our #PledgeForPlanet initiative marks another milestone in our ongoing work to tackle the impacts of climate change.
Mars Associates around the world can receive off-the-record, confidential assistance with any work-related matter, all thanks to a program started by Victoria Mars, a member of our board, more than 20 years ago.
Today, Mars was once again named on the World’s Best Workplaces list by Great Place To Work. Eric Minvielle, Vice President, People & Organization, thanked Associates for their hard work, dedication and commitment to taking everyday actions toward the world we want tomorrow.
Our Associates are proud to volunteer in many ways around the world. From a local farmers market in the United States to serving hundreds of Iftar meals in Dubai, we live our purpose in the office and beyond.
For more than 100 years, we’ve understood that a business can only be successful if it also enables all of its partners, community and the environment to thrive. It resonates strongly for us here at Mars where mutuality—creating enduring benefits which are shared—is a core principle.
This is also a principle at the heart of a new coalition which we are proud to be joining.
Jessica Mason captained her university’s triathlon club, where she developed a passion for motivating people. Now a project engineer at the Mars Food factory in King’s Lynn, England, she continues to put this skill to use to encourage more young women to follow in her footsteps and pursue a STEM program.
