China Daily (USA) - - G20 2016 CHINA -

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.
