Mondelēz International announced a new commitment to make all packaging recyclable and provide recycling information by 2025. The company will work in partnerships so that packaging can be collected and recycled in markets around the world. This new commitment is part of the company’s strategy for a circular packaging economy and will help deliver its long-term vision for zero-net waste packaging.

The announcement reflected the company’s new purpose to empower people to snack right by offering the right snack, at the right time, in the right way. This includes ensuring that the company’s products are made with ingredients that are sustainably sourced, produced and delivered, with positive impact along the supply chain. 

The company’s strategy aims to deliver against its long-term vision for zero-net waste packaging by addressing two objectives: making it easier for consumers to recycle packaging and supporting industry coalitions to improve recycling rates.

To achieve this, the company will provide design guidelines for circular economy to packaging developers, set priorities and identify materials to use or avoid across its packaging range. All paper-based packaging will also be sustainably sourced by 2020.

In addition, 65 million kg of packaging material worldwide will be eliminated by 2020. This builds off the company’s success in removing 53.5 million kg of packaging material since 2013 and is consistent with its commitment to use the right amount of material to keep products fresh and safe while minimizing the amount of packaging used.

The company will support industry coalitions and public-private partnerships to develop vital waste-management infrastructure to reduce waste and improve real-world recycling rates.

By continuously improving packaging design, Mondelēz International has already made substantial progress to minimize the environmental impact of packaging. Most of the company’s packaging is already recycled, recyclable or recycle-ready. Around 75% of its packaging is comprised of glass, paper or metal and around 70% of paper-based packaging is from recycled sources.

“As the global snacking leader, we’re committing to using sustainably-sourced materials and recyclable packaging as part of our active contribution to reduce packaging waste and establish a circular economy for packaging,” said Rob Hargrove, Executive Vice President, Research, Development, Quality and Innovation.
