Poor

Mondelez owns Cadbury and Oreo, but its business behaviour is less than sweet. It struggles on climate change, water, transparency, 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.

Score 3

Women

Score 5

Mondelez’s recent publishing of impact assessments and action plans to support women in its supply chain is a great start but it now needs to ensure its suppliers are implementing these commitments. A next key step for Mondelez is to address gender issues in its other supply chains.

Farmers

Score 4

Transparency

Score 3

Increasingly open about its lobbying, Mondelez is otherwise elusive– disclosing little information about its own suppliers or their compliance with its code.

Water

Score 3

Slowly improving on water but trails behind most of the others. While Mondelez recognizes the importance of water, it doesn’t consult communities on the impacts of its water use or publish water guidelines for suppliers
