Mondelēz International announces its positive 2015 sustainability and waste reduction figures

The American confectionary giant, Mondelēz International, has published its ‘solid’ 2015 waste reduction and sustainability figures, while at the same time thinking ahead to its 2020 targets, as it works towards a more sustainable and environmentally sound future.

Mondelēz, owner of the much-loved British chocolate brand Cadbury and other global household names, including Toblerone and Oreo, confirmed that it achieved almost all of its sustainability goals as set out by the firm for 2015.

The Illinois-headquartered firm said that its targets for reduced water usage, emissions output and waste production across its worldwide manufacturing and administrative sites had all been met.

Since 2010, Mondelēz has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions at its manufacturing plants by 19% per tonne. Water reduction dropped by 17% per tonne between the same period and packaging production decreased by 48,500 tonnes. These figures go above and beyond the confectioner’s targets.

Additionally, production of waste across the entire company fell by 70% per tonne, a momentous result and five times the initial target for 2015.

Unfortunately, Mondelēz did suffer one disappointment; its goal of reducing manufacturing energy intensity by 15% per tonne, was not achieved.

Irene Rosenfeld, chief executive of Mondelez, said: “Our growth is directly linked to enhancing the well-being of our planet, the lives of the people who make and enjoy our products, and the communities we serve.”

Ms Rosenfeld went on to say the confectioner must now focus on its 2020 sustainability goals, which are largely based on the emerging “science-based targets” that places a large emphasis on the complete reduction of CO2 emissions.
