Mars Incorporated's Climate Action Contribution

About Mars Incorporated's Climate Efforts

Mars is all in on climate action. Mars recognizes our responsibility to address the environmental and social impacts of our business. Reducing our full value chain greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to lessen our climate change impact is a key aspect of that responsibility, and provides important opportunities to help drive momentum for global climate action.

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."
