Greta Thunberg is right, cocoa production is at risk from the climate crisis


Greta Thunberg was right when she complained that political and business leaders often speak kindly (“”Bulbulbla”) about climate, but do very little. So says Grant Reed, director of Mars, the company also known for M&M’s dog food, Twix and Royal Canin.

Last year, Mars came under fire from the Rainforest Action Network, which accused the company of “greenwashing.” According to the working group, the chocolate producer does very little to combat deforestation.

Some mockery of green Foreword by Reed in The Guardian So its place. Mars CEO wrote that “we must do everything we can to show that our climate promises are not ‘blablabla’, says Greta.”

It’s easy for companies to declare that they will be carbon neutral by 2050, Reid wrote. “Key components are often missing, and our collective efforts to prevent the worst effects of climate change will fail.”

Mars itself also plans to contribute anything to global warming by 2050. One of the ways the producer wants to achieve is to cut the salaries of senior employees to relate The company’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Some self-interests may also play a role. The climate crisis could threaten the survival of Mars. Drought in West Africa is causing problems in cocoa production, says Barry Barkin, head of sustainability at the chocolate manufacturer.
