FOOTNOTES:

1. 2018 and 2019 results were updated after the re-baseline in 2020. 

2. Following the SBTi guidelines, our carbon programs focus on the categories of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that are the most impactful for Mondelēz International, representing 21MM metric tonnes CO₂e in 2021 (or 83% of our total value chain GHG emissions footprint). The following GHG emissions are included in our goal setting: Scope 1, Scope 2 and major elements of Scope 3, namely purchased goods and services and waste generated in operations.

3. As part of joining SBTi Business Ambition for 1.5°C, we are currently re-calculating our Scope 3 footprint to capture and reflect the impact of our ongoing mitigation strategies.

4. The food waste generated in 2018 and 2019 was estimated due to lack of data granularity. The estimation was calculated using the contribution of food waste to the total waste indicator in year 2020 (the year we started collecting granular data). An assumption was made that this contribution was constant in the previous years and it was applied to the verified 2018 and 2019 total waste numbers. Waste exceptions apply.

5. This indicator was updated in 2021 to reflect the new baseline (2018) and an expanded list of priority sites, according to an analysis based on the Aqueduct tool from World Resources Institute.

6. Indicators covers Nov 2020 to Oct 2021 period.

7. Our methodology changed as we no longer included a few business units that did not have chocolate brands. 

8. Prior to the Snacking Made Right (SMR) 2021 Report, the KPI result reported reflected performance over the full year prior to the reporting year – for example, the SMR 2020 Report KPI result reflected full-year 2019 performance. For this SMR 2021 Report, we have adjusted our process and timeline and the KPI result reflects full-year performance for the reporting year – i.e., SMR 2021 KPI result reflects full-year performance for 2021. 

9. Our SMETA audits performance and progress in our manufacturing sites have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic over the past three years.

10. Between 2018 and 2020 our SMETA program covered almost 100% of our direct spend (raw materials, packaging and external manufacturing) and all our highest priority suppliers were audited. In 2021, we started a new auditing cycle, using Sedex’s Radar risk assessment tool to prioritize suppliers.

11. Reported against a baseline of total active (real-time) number of stock keeping units (SKUs) in our specification system (PLM).

12. Year 2021 performance data reflect varying impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic.

13. We have a comprehensive quality and food safety training curriculum; 5,705 participants across all functions took our top 15 digital courses.  In 2021, we upgraded our quality and food safety policies and offered additional training that 3,869 participants completed.


Reported performance against our quantitative ESG goals covers the period from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021, and includes manufacturing facilities under our direct and indirect control, and excludes acquisitions since 2018, unless stated otherwise. Where quantitative goals are linked to revenue, coverage is for all Mondelēz International revenue (excluding acquisitions since 2018) except Venezuela, for which results are excluded from our consolidated financial statements. Where quantitative goals are linked to operations, coverage is for all operations under the control of our integrated supply chain function (excluding acquisitions since 2018); data for external manufacturing includes estimations. Our 2015 acquisition of Enjoy Life Foods is included only in our reporting for our packaging innovation goal. In addition, historical, current and forward-looking sustainability-related statements may be based on standards for measuring progress that are still developing, internal controls and processes that continue to evolve, and assumptions that are subject to change in the future. The information included in, and any issues identified as material for purposes of, this document may not be considered material for SEC reporting purposes. In the context of this disclosure, the term “material” is distinct from, and should not be confused with, such term as defined for SEC reporting purposes.
