2022 Snacking Made Right Report
The annual Snacking Made Right Report is part of our wider goal to provide transparent, measurable information to our stakeholders on our ESG goals, policies, initiatives and programs, while seeking to amplify and accelerate our sustainability vision of helping to create a future where together people and the planet thrive. Last year, we elevated sustainability as the fourth pillar of our Vision 2030 strategy. This report illustrates Mondelēz International’s achievements thus far in building a more sustainable snacking company that will help to enable innovation and accelerated long-term growth, grounded in the best interests of our stakeholders.
This year’s Snacking Made Right report illustrates our progress toward our 2025 goals, including sourcing more sustainable ingredients, helping reduce climate change, improving packaging, advancing diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) initiatives, and supporting customers, colleagues and communities.
"At Mondelēz International, we are wholeheartedly committed to going further and faster in terms of sustainable growth and impact. Building on our 2025 public goals, we have bold and targeted long-term ambitions which help us focus, accelerate and scale our efforts, and we are also putting a longer-term focus on working toward our 2050 goals of net zero carbon and packaging waste by supporting circular economies."
CHRISTINE MONTENEGRO MCGRATH, SVP, Chief Impact & Sustainability Officer

1. This goal is new and combines and replaces historical goals relating to Portion Control Snacks and snacks with Snack Mindfully portion icon on pack. This goal measures the percentage of net revenue that comes from products that are either individually wrapped mindful portion serving sizes (<200 calories) or have a mindful portion label/information on pack. This information includes biscuits and baked snacks, chocolate, and candy, and does not include Halls products, semi-final products not sold to consumers, bulk products for wholesale, beverages, meals, gums, seasonal or festive products, licensing/royalty revenue, private label products and products with small printable areas.
2. Goal and reported information for cocoa volume sourced is based on a mass balance approach, which means that the equivalent volume of cocoa needed for the products sold under our chocolate brands is sourced from the Cocoa Life program.

Reported information for the period from January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022 includes a community as covered by CLMRS if the work of identifying children, if any, in or at risk of child labor has been completed by the end of the year, even if any appropriate remediation and post-remediation follow-up occurs in the following year. CLMRS data is provided by third parties. Includes Ghana, Cote d'Ivoire and Nigeria.
4. Priority sites are defined as sites that are located in a high or extremely high water risk zone defined as of 2021. This metric is measured in accordance with our internal Water Supply Management Health Safety and Environment System for priority sites.
