Microphone Mars: using science-based targets to reduce impacts

Sourcing challenges for multiple brands – collaboration on data can help

Ashley Allen, climate and land senior manager, Mars, talks with Toby Webb about the company’s stretching commitments on climate change. To achieve its ‘sustainable in a generation’ plan, Mars has set ambitious targets for its operations and supply chains. This includes analysing the ingredients – and from where they are sourced – in its branded products for greenhouse gas impacts, to find the best ingredients at the lowest environmental cost. Allen argues that this is getting easier as more and more companies are using, and sharing, simliar data.
