McDonald's Climate Action Aims for Net Zero Emissions by 2050
USAgNet - 10/11/2021

McDonald's Corporation is announcing its commitment to achieve net zero emissions across its global operations by 2050. As part of this initiative, the fast food giant is joining the United Nations Race to Zero campaign and signing on to the Science Based Targets initiative's Business Ambition for 1.5°C campaign.

In pursuit of a 1.5°C future, McDonald's will increase the emissions reduction levels in its existing 2030 science-based target across all scopes of emissions in line with developing SBTi best practices and will set a long-term reduction target to reach net zero emissions.

"We believe we have both a privilege and a responsibility to help lead on issues that matter most in communities - and there is no issue more urgent globally and of impact locally than protecting our planet for generations to come," said Chris Kempczinski, McDonald's President and Chief Executive Officer. "By committing to net zero through the SBTi's Business Ambition for 1.5°C campaign, we are helping every community we serve mitigate the impacts of climate change and adapt for the future."

Efforts underway since 2018 have already resulted in an 8.5% reduction in the absolute emissions of restaurant and offices and a 5.9% decrease in supply chain emissions intensity against a 2015 baseline.
