CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITIES GUIDELINES
Our mission is to lead the future of snacking by offering the right snack, for the right moment, made the right way. We call this Snacking Made Right.
We are committed to making our snacks the right way, protecting the planet and respecting the human rights of people in our value chain. Our Human Rights Policy uses the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) as a framework for preventing and mitigating human rights risks. The Policy is aligned with our Code of Conduct and Supplier Code of Conduct.
We undertake practical, proactive, and ongoing human rights due diligence to identify, mitigate and reduce the likelihood of potential and actual human rights impacts within our own operations, and work with our business partners in our supply chain to achieve the same. We strive to embed these due diligence practices at a central level, as well as at a local level in collaboration with our business units.
Our Human Rights efforts include our signature programs Cocoa Life and Harmony, where we strive to make a positive impact on the farms, communities, and environment where our most important raw materials – cocoa and wheat – are grown.
Since 2012, we have leveraged Cocoa Life, our holistic sustainability program which we are backing with a $400 million investment during the first 10 years, to address human rights risks associated with labor in the cocoa supply chain. To learn more about our ingredient supply chain check out our Sustainable Ingredients page.
We are committed to treating people fairly, through our Compliance & Integrity program, where we ensure the availability of accessible grievance mechanisms (e.g., Integrity HelpLine and WebLine) for our own employees, contractors, and subcontractors to use for raising any concerns and to better enable Mondelēz International to appropriately redress human rights impacts which we have either caused or contributed to.
To read more about our commitments and actions towards identifying and mitigating potential and actual Human Rights impacts within our own operations see our annual Human Rights Due Diligence report.
