Mondelez International Named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index

Mondelēz International has once again been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for both the North America and World indices. The DJSI is a globally recognized independent benchmark that conducts comprehensive assessments of a company’s economic, environmental and social performance with a strong focus on long-term value creation for shareholders.

Mondelēz International’s overall score was in the 92nd percentile of its industry.  The company also achieved perfect scores of 100 in environmental reporting and health and nutrition.

“We’re proud of our continued strong performance in the DJSI World Index,” says Christine McGrath, Chief Sustainability, Well-being and Public & Government Affairs Officer. “Our company’s future success is rooted in helping people snack in balance and enjoy life. People want snacks that are made with less energy, water, and waste; in safe working environments for employees and suppliers; and with ingredients they know and feel good about.”

For the 2017 assessment, the world’s largest 3,500 companies from developed and emerging markets were invited to take part. Only companies scoring among the top 10 percent per industry were eligible for the World Index, while companies in the top 20 percent per industry were eligible for the North America index.

In June, Mondelēz International released its 2016 Impact for Growth Progress Report, which detailed the company’s progress against its 2020 sustainable agriculture and environmental footprint goals to fight the impact of climate change. The company reported a 7 percent fall in absolute CO2 emissions from manufacturing, 18 percent less water used at priority locations where water is most scarce and a 20 percent increase in the reach of Cocoa Life, the company’s sustainable cocoa sourcing program.

The report also describes how the company met ahead of schedule targets to increase the number of individually wrapped portion-control options and increase whole grain by 25 percent, further validating its ambition to be a global leader in well-being snacks.
