At Mondelēz International, we are committed to making our snacks the right way, protecting the planet and respecting the human rights of people in our value chain. We use the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) as a framework for preventing and addressing associated risks.
We undertake practical, business minded, proactive, 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 through our supply chain to achieve the same.
In our cocoa supply chain, we work through our Cocoa Life program to empower farmers and their communities to improve incomes, become more productive and climate-resilient, protect the environment, drive out deforestation and respect the rights of people in our supply chain.
In other key raw material supply chains, we’re raising expectations of our suppliers and seeking more transparency over their entire supply and the due diligence systems they have in place to identify and address social risks and impacts.
We believe sustainability should be universal and available to all, so we’re collaborating with peer companies, suppliers, governments and non-profit partners to spread best practices beyond our own supply chain. And because it takes action from all actors along the supply chain to address systemic environmental and human rights issues, we support legislative efforts aimed at enabling practical, business-minded, proactive, ongoing human rights due diligence which would require companies to identify and address risks in their value chain.
