Mars is focused on reducing carbon emissions in its own operations and is gradually increasing renewable energy supply to its sites worldwide with the goal that 100% of energy consumption will be fossil fuel free by 2040.

Mars has explored a number of on-site renewable generation options, either integrating them into the design stage of new sites or updating current facilities. For example, solar panels were added to the Wrigley site in Tennessee.

Utilizing renewable power generated by local resources is also an important option for some locations; electricity generated from hydropower in Brazil is used at one Mars chocolate and three Mars pet care factories.

The majority of Mars’ emissions are in its supply chain - approximately 65% - and so it is important to work with partners to generate clean power as one option to reduce carbon emissions.
