Mars Incorporated's Climate Action Contribution
About Mars Incorporated's Climate Efforts
As part of our Sustainable in a Generation Plan, Mars’ set targets to reduce our total GHG emissions from our full value chain by 27% by 2025 and by 67% by 2050, from 2015 levels. These targets encompass targets to achieve net zero GHG emissions from our operations (scopes 1 and 2) by 2040 and utilize 100% renewable energy (RE 100).
Mars' ambitious, science-based GHG reduction targets aim to keep us within our share of the global carbon budget. Our targets are informed by the best-available climate science, detailed emissions data, and a set of “carbon principle."
