Mars, Incorporated is a private, family-owned business headquartered in McLean, VA, with $35 billion in sales from six diverse business segments: Petcare, Chocolate, Wrigley, Food, Drinks and Symbioscience. More than 85,000 Associates across over 80 countries are united by the company’s Five Principles: Quality, Efficiency, Responsibility, Mutuality and Freedom. Across our supply chain, we base our sustainability-related decisions on the best available scientific data, collaborate with a variety of partners, and work directly with suppliers to achieve lasting results. Striving for the highest environmental standards across all of our operations ensures the Mars family of brands can thrive for generations to come. Our Sustainable in a Generation (SiG) initiative, launched in 2007, commits us to eliminating fossil fuel use and GHG emissions from our operations by 2040. Our 20-year commitment to purchase power from Mesquite Creek Wind, a 118-turbine wind-farm in the US, is one example of how we’re trying to achieve this. Mesquite Creek and our other renewable projects have helped us reach an emissions reduction of 29.2% since 2007.
