Mondelez continues to lead on women’s empowerment in the cocoa supply chain. The company made notable progress this year on climate change and has improved on workers. Work very much still needed on transparency (including tax) and water.

The index tackles some cutting edge issues that will require rigorous debate and dialogue between companies, civil society and industry experts. Find out more...

Mondelez no longer sits at the bottom of the scorecard on climate change because they’ve published climate commitments that are huge step in the right direction. They still have ways to go towards increasing its ambition. In particular the company needs to strengthen renewable energy goals, requirements for their suppliers, and supporting small scale farmers to build resilience.See how other companies score on Climate

Mondelez is a poor performer on water. The company comes in dead last in our water scorecard and it’s the company’s lowest scoring theme. While Mondelez recognizes the importance of water and reports publically through CDP water, there is a lot more work to do.See how other companies score on Water
