Mondelez has one pending ESG shareholder proposals in 2014.

  • ENVIRONMENT: Recyclable Packaging
    • This proposal from As You Sow focuses on phasing out non-recyclable packaging, asking for a report “assessing the environmental impacts of continuing to use” non-recyclable packaging, noting new reports that link degraded plastic packaging to toxicity in ocean gyres, which broadens the focus area to threats to marine animals and human environmental health. An EPR proposal last year at Mondelez garnered 9.5 percent.

      BE IT RESOLVED THAT: Shareholders of Mondelēz International request the Board to issue a report at reasonable cost, omitting confidential information, by October 1, 2014 assessing the environmental impacts of continuing to use non-recyclable brand packaging.

      SUPPORTING STATEMENT: Proponents believe the report should include an assessment of the reputational, financial, and operational risks associated with continuing to use non-recyclable brand packaging and, to the extent possible, goals and a timeline to phase out non-recyclable packaging.
