ILLINOIS, July 26, 2017 - Mondelez International Inc. recently released its 2016 Impact for Growth Progress report which, among other things, describes the snacking company’s progress towards its 2020 sustainable agriculture and environmental footprint goals to fight climate change. The maker of Oreo cookies, Trident gum and Cadbury chocolates says it reduced absolute carbon dioxide emissions from manufacturing by 7 percent in 2016. “Our Sustainability 2020 goals place us at the forefront of the fight against climate change and support our ambition to be the leader in well-being snacks, while reducing costs and generating efficiencies that accelerate our growth,” said Hubert Weber, the company’s executive vice president and the president of Mondelez Europe. “In 2014, we were a year ahead of schedule in accomplishing our 2015 goals for packaging, greenhouse gas emissions and net waste.” The company’s plan is to reduce CO2 emissions by 15 percent, or 240,000 tons, by 2020.
