"P15 Cocoa for Generations is our integrated approach to sourcing cocoa

responsibly and working toward sustainable practices. By 2025, we aim to

be traceable (from the farmer to the first point of purchase) and will work

with our suppliers and certifiers with the goal of deploying child labor

monitoring and remediation systems to 100% of our at

-risk cocoa supply

chain. Early indications show that these systems have the potential to halve

the risk of hazardous child labor among participating families. " "P16 Robust Child and Forced Labor Monitoring and Remediation Systems:

We are committed to ensuring suppliers have in place robust child and

forced labor monitoring and remediation systems designed to identify,

prevent and seek to remediate cases of child labor and forced labor, as

relevant. In 2020, we expanded coverage of CLMRS to nearly 70% of

volumes sourced in Cote d'Ivoire and Ghana, across 58,000 households.

We seek to ensure 100% of at-risk families in our cocoa supply chains are

covered by Robust Child and Forced Labor Monitoring and Remediation

Systems by 2025 and anticipate that will include at least 180,000 cocoa

farming households across Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire, Cameroon and Nigeria.

We will also take action in other origin countries as appropriate. "
