... to help make ‘climate change resilience’ tangible for a specific sourcing region in Spain, both in terms of quantifying the risk and assessing the adaptive capacity of various stakeholders to do something about it.

Given Mars Inc.’s global sustainability efforts and strategic commitments around renewable energy, sustainable operations and sourcing, we are deeply concerned about climate change, as it poses potential supply chain risks to our business. We found a professional and effective partner in Ecofys to help make ‘climate change resilience’ tangible for a specific sourcing region in Spain, both in terms of quantifying the risk and assessing the adaptive capacity of various stakeholders to do something about it. This project provided a powerful lens through which our procurement teams analyzed their supply chain, and identified potential adaptation strategies to inform and focus supplier engagement and future sourcing strategy development.
