Mars has been in business since 1911 — and we want to be thriving another hundred years from now. We believe scientific research and big-impact innovation will help us achieve this, as well as tackling some of the world’s most pressing challenges.
While Pride Month is celebrated in June, our Associates are #ProudlyMars every day. Whether this means volunteering in the community or simply being their authentic selves at work, our Associates can attest that Mars’ culture of diversity and inclusion isn’t limited to one month of the year.
While we are one of the world’s top advertisers, the truth is we have more work to do through our marketing and advertising in reflecting society as it is, and in driving positive change.
Bold ambitions require bold actions. So when Mars flipped the switch to wind in Mexico, we ensured that our electricity consumption is 100% renewable, powered by a new wind farm in Dzilam Bravo, Mexico.
Mars Mexico joins nine other regional Mars operations that are migrating to clean energy, including Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Lithuania, Poland, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States. Australia will come online soon.
It’s that time of year again, when top publications release their top workplace awards and list the best of the best, all around the globe. Congratulations to our top spots — Portugal, Switzerland, France, Central America & the Caribbean, Italy, Spain, Norway, the United States, South Korea, India, Ireland, Belgium, Austria and the United Kingdom. We know more regions are sure to come!
We had a bold, colorful showing at the 2019 Cannes Lions Festival, and we’re thrilled that the international advertising industry recognized our strong work. We earned 16 Lions across a variety of categories, including a Grand Prix for our groundbreaking work with the Lion’s Share Fund.
To assess the challenges, the office commissioned a survey to ask what women needed to succeed. Several women voiced their opinions for more advice and support — and in response, the team launched this Mentorship Program in 2018.
Now, not even a year later, the program redefines how women receive support on their leadership journey.
We believe that A Better World For Pets is a better world for everyone, and that’s a world where more pets are more welcome in more places — including work.
For the last 10 years we’ve reinforced and implemented our pet-friendly culture across Mars sites worldwide. We visited with some of our Associates to get a firsthand look at their experiences and the benefits of working side-by-side each day with their best friends. One thing they all agree on: pets at work, work — for both people and for pets.
The world’s coral reefs are in trouble — marine heatwaves linked to climate change, human destruction and pollution are contributing to the loss of reefs around the world. At the current rate of decline, it is quite possible that in two generations, aquariums may be the only place a young child will be able to witness the wonder of color and life that encompasses a coral reef.
Mexico’s biggest garbage dump lies in the outskirts of Mexico City. In the nearby sunny offices of MITZ, a group of female artisans — many who once relied on the landfill for survival — are putting the trash to good use.
