Sustainability

Sustainability is about preserving our world - land, air, water and people. At Mondelēz International, our sustainability journey has put us on a path that is making a real difference.

Sustainability achievements of Mondelēz China

From 2005 to 2011, Mondelēz China has made significant leap in sustainable developments. Energy used, total waste and water consumption for per ton product were reduced by 46%, 43% and 55% respectively.

In Suzhou, our plants received awards from Suzhou’s Industrial Zone for its green innovations, including “Air-Compressor and Oven Waste Heat Recovery" and “High Efficient Lighting and Air Conditioning.” Those projects could save nearly 200,000 cubic meters of natural gas and nearly 1.3 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year, or approximately 685 tons of Standard Coal Equivalent.

In Beijing, our plant received special fund from Beijing Municipality for Water Conservation for its rainwater recycling project. Under the project, rainwater is collected and recycled for cooling and landscape irrigation, and could save around 20% of the total water consumption (nearly 10,000 cubic meters of water).

Sowing Our Future through Sustainable Agriculture

From cookies, crackers to chocolates, our business depends on farm products. That’s why we support sustainable farming projects. It’s good for our business, helps the environment and can improve the lives of local farmers.

Cocoa Made Happy

“Coffee Made Happy” Stirs Up Global Industry’s Approach to Sustainability Mondelēz International is the world’s second-largest coffee company. That makes us think a lot about coffee farmers. Coffee Made Happy – our latest sustainability initiative -- will invest a minimum of $200 million to empower one million coffee-farming entrepreneurs by 2020. It’s an inspirational program that’s a huge leap forward for us, and for the coffee industry.

Carbon Disclosure Project

There are many points of view and perspectives on how to tackle a complex issue like climate change. We communicate our strategy on climate change through the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). You can review our submissions from 2004 to 2011 on the CDP site.

Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil

Currently, we purchase less than 0.6% of worldwide production. We are concerned about the potential long-term environmental and social impacts of tropical deforestation. This is why we participate in the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) to develop and enforce standards for sustainable palm oil production.
