Some progress

Mondelez owns Cadbury and Oreo, but its business behaviour is less than sweet.It struggles on  climate change, water,  workers and land rights. However its commitment to support women in its supply chains will go a good way to making a difference for women.

How are the scores formed?

Workers

Score 3

Mondelez has taken a step forward in requiring suppliers to pay fair and timely compensation. The company should now report on the number of workers in its supply chain that receive a living wage so that consumers can see if the requirement of fair compensation is leading to higher wages.

Climate

Score 4

Mondelez sits at the bottom of the scorecard on climate change and has a ways to go towards increasing its ambition. In particular, the company needs to strengthen value chain emissions reduction targets, renewable energy goals, requirements for their suppliers, and supporting small scale farmers to build resilience.
