Reporting our Progress

Outlining our goals and being transparent on our progress demonstrates our intent, and allows others to see how we’re doing on our journey. To see how we’re doing, you can download our Impact 2018 Progress Report, which highlights our progress against our global goals. We provide annual updates on these metrics.

The scope of our report is of our entire company. Where quantitative goals are linked to revenue, such as our published Well-being Snacks and Communities goals, coverage is for all Mondelēz International revenue, except Venezuela which was removed from our financial reporting in 2015. Where quantitative goals are linked to operations, such as our sustainability, employee safety and food safety goals, coverage is all operations under our management control, unless stated otherwise. Data for our manufacturing environmental goals (CO2, water, waste) are verified by SGS. The verification statement is available here.

Our approach to stakeholder engagement

We are committed to listening to and talking with a wide variety of stakeholders. From farmers and community leaders, to academia and global officials, to suppliers and customers – we welcome transparent and honest feedback on our approach.

We engage on matters pertinent to our business around our impact strategy with governments, authorities and other relevant organizations. We have  policies and procedures in place to ensure this engagement is transparent. Our Code of Conduct requires our employees to deal honestly with the government.  In addition, we are listed in the EU interest representation register and follow its code of conduct in our dealings with EU institutions. Where and when required by law, we also file publicly available reports with U.S. government authorities that disclose our political activities and related expenditures.

We participate in collaborative efforts with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and community based groups.  Many of these groups serve as advisers to our key programs, such as our Cocoa Life external advisory panel.

We are members of various organizations that cover a range of issues important to our business. Our engagement in these organizations is based on the philosophy of bringing together differing view and to help drive change. At times, our views may differ from others.  Here is a sample of the groups we take part in: 

Consumer Goods Forum
The Grocery Manufacturers Association 
International Cocoa Initiative
International Food & Beverage Alliance 
International Life Sciences Institute 
Food Industry Asia
Food-Drink Europe
Food & Consumer Products of Canada
Mexican Council of Consumer Goods Products (ConMexico)
World Cocoa Foundation
World Federation of Advertisers

External assessments and shareholder indices

Dow Jones Sustainability Index

The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices serve as benchmarks for investors who integrate sustainability considerations into their portfolios, and provide an effective engagement platform for companies who want to adopt sustainable best practices.

Access to Nutrition Index

The Access to Nutrition Index is a new global initiative that evaluates food and beverage manufacturers on their policies, practices, and performance related to obesity and undernutrition.

CDP Climate

CDP is an international, not-for-profit organization providing the only global system for companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage and share vital environmental information. We have reported climate change data to CDP Climate since 2004.

We have also reported information about our water footprint to CDP Water since 2013. See links below to our 2014 and 2015 CDP reports.
