How Mars Uses Aqueduct

Mars is reducing its environmental impacts in line with what science saying is necessary to keep the planet healthy. They’ve identified that water stress is a material and increasing risk to their business, impacting the operation of their factories and raw material supply chains, especially those for crops such as rice and mint that are heavily irrigated and sourced from water stressed countries like India, Pakistan, and Spain. Mars has been using Aqueduct since 2014 to help identify water stressed locations in their value chain, and Aqueduct’s Baseline water stress indicator continues to be used by Mars to help inform our water risk assessments and to help set context based targets to reduce unsustainable water usage.
