As one of the world’s largest food manufacturers, Mars is most interested in relevant industry topics like climate change and food security. These are global challenges that require global solutions, and the G20 is a great platform for the world’s leading economies to come together and take the lead in addressing these challenges.
Mars is committed to being a part of the solution. We have made a firm commitment to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions from our operations by 2040, and because we see food safety as critical to food security, we have also invested in a Global Food Safety Center based in Huairou, Beijing. We hope to see more efforts in encouraging and rallying governments and businesses to do more in these areas.
As the theme of the summit revolves around “building an innovative, invigorated, interconnected and inclusive world economy”, I amalso interested to learn more about innovative approaches to boost international trade and investment, and promote inclusive and interconnected development. I believeMars will have a role to play in this journey.
