Across the globe, our Mondelēz International team is working hard to simplify our packaging design with the goal of reducing our environmental impact.

We do that in three ways:

  • We optimize our packaging format so we can reduce our packaging material and minimize food waste.
  • We simplify our material choices by using innovative packaging solutions to facilitate recycling in our existing infrastructure.
  • Working in coalitions, we support improved infrastructure and greater harmonization of packaging formats, collecting and recycling more waste all around the world. 

Currently, over 75% of our packaging is paper-based, glass or metal– all of which are currently recycled or recyclable. The other portion of our packaging is mostly made up of flexible plastic films used to preserve foods and prevent food waste. 

By 2025, 100% of our packaging around the globe will be recyclable. In addition to the great impact this has on the environment, using less packaging provides an economic benefit by reducing material, transportation and disposal costs.
