The company is committing to making all its packaging with recyclable material by 2025; all paper-based packaging will be sustainably sourced by 2020; and 65 million kg of packaging material worldwide will be eliminated by 2020.

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.

Rob Hargrove, executive vice president, research, development, quality and innovation, said: “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.

“Plastic waste and its impact on the planet is a broad, systemic issue that our consumers care deeply about, and which requires a holistic response. Together with partners from across the industry, as well as public and private entities, we can help to develop practical solutions that result in a positive environmental impact.”

Recycling information for consumers will be provided by 2025 to make it easy for consumers to recycle or re-use product packs after use.

Around 75% of Mondelez’s packaging is comprised of glass, paper or metal and around 70% of paper-based packaging is from recycled sources.

Recent packaging improvements at the snacking giant include:

  • In the UK, Cadbury Heroes tubs were redesigned to use 17% less plastic resulting in 30% fewer trucks to transport them.

  • In Asia, Middle East and Africa, improvements to secondary packs and shippers for chocolate products saved more than 1 million kg of corrugated paper.

  • In the USA, Oreo cookies packaging were made 23% thinner, which reduced the need for nearly 1.5 million kg of cartons annually.
