Building a More Sustainable CPG Sector

The next decade is critical as the global community looks to achieve the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals and make significant progress on mitigating climate change and preserving biodiversity. Although no single company, organization or even industry can tackle these challenges alone, it’s clear the private sector has a major role to play. So, how can companies work together to leverage their supply chains, customer relationships and talented teams to create positive impact? 

In this series sponsored by Mondelēz International, we’ll take a closer look at how industry collaboration is driving sustainability in the consumer packaged goods (CPG) sector in particular. We’ll explore how industry leaders can come together to drive action, with a focus on what's different in this sector that is so closely tied to agricultural supply chains worldwide.
