It states of remediation but the approach or process of remediation is not explicitly mentioned.

pg. 10

"We engage independent auditors with expertise in labor issues to assess our human rights performance in our workplaces. Non-compliances that are identified are addressed."

" Across all three of our programs, we use customized approaches to assess risk and where issues are identified, we have processes in place to support remediation –by Mars and through suppliers."

It outlines various action plans but does not explicitly mention it as a corrective action to address the issues of modern slavery.

pg. 16

"In 2019, we issued our first annual Cocoa for Generations report on progress and in early 2020 we launched our Protecting Children Action Plan."

pg. 20

"We continued to implement our Protecting Children Action plan in cocoa, the Palm Positive plan in palm oil, and the next phases of our work addressing human rights issues in the Thai fish supply chain with partners such as Verité, CARE and others. "
