McDonald’s set science based greenhouse gas reeducation target
McDonald’s has become the first restaurant company to set approved science based targets to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.
The global fast food chain says it will partner with its franchisees and suppliers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions related to its restaurants and offices by 36 per cent by 2030 (from a 2015 base year).
McDonald’s has also committed to a 31 per cent reduction in emissions intensity across its supply chain by 2030 (also from 2015 levels).
The two targets combined have been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative, a program that helps companies calculate how much and how quickly they need to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
McDonald’s says if it achieves the targets it expects 150 million metric tons of greenhouse gas will be stopped from being released.
This is the equivalent of taking 32 million cars off the road for a year or planting 3.8 billion trees and growing them for ten years.
Steve Easterbrook, McDonald’s President and CEO, said to create a better future for the planet everyone must get involved.
“McDonald’s is doing its part by setting this ambitious goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to address the challenge of global climate change,” Easterbrook said.
“To meet this goal, we will source our food responsibly, promote renewable energy and use it efficiently, and reduce waste and increase recycling.”
