Mars Commits to Net Zero GHG Across Entire Business
By Grant F. Reid, CEO & Office of the President at Mars
We know we need to accelerate our plans and drive the critical change to protect the planet. It is our responsibility to tackle climate change and eliminate greenhouse gas emissions across our value chain, and we will do it by 2050.
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.

How Mars is Amplifying the Voices of Women
By VICTORIA MARS, former Mars chairman
It will take the next 136 years to achieve women’s equality worldwide, according to the World Economic Forum. But what if women everywhere were heard, listened to, and we all collectively took action to change that? At Mars, that's the only path forward we see – and what led us to launch #HereToBeHeard, a groundbreaking global listening study that asked over 10,000 women, "What needs to change for more women to reach their full potential?" Join us to listen, learn, and do more.
Building the world we want to see tomorrow starts with how we do business today — from product innovation to transforming the workplace to disrupting business as usual. In these ever-evolving times, we’re driven to transform our business by thinking big and acting boldly.
