Mars Calls on Global Leaders to Take Bold Action on Climate Change, Accelerates Its Own Renewable Energy Efforts

Mars Calls on Global Leaders to Take Bold Action on Climate Change, Accelerates Its Own Renewable Energy Efforts | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

Mars, Incorporated is urging the business community and global leaders at COP22 to take bold action to implement the targets agreed last year in Paris for tackling climate change. Mars combined this call to action with an announcement of plans for a wind farm in Mexico—its third major wind energy commitment in as many years.
Mars has an ambition to eliminate all fossil fuel use from its operations by 2040. Today the company is urging business and global leaders to do the same by setting ambitious goals that go beyond the national targets agreed at COP21.
