McDonald’s Corp, on a quest to boost sales by improving its image, is vowing to cut its greenhouse-gas emissions.
The world’s largest restaurant chain is adding LED lights and more efficient kitchen equipment, such as grills and fryers, in a bid to reduce emissions at its restaurants and offices by 36% by the year 2030 from 2015 levels.
Changes to beef production, meanwhile, will lower greenhouse gases from the company’s supply chain by 31%, McDonald’s said.
Suppliers are experimenting with new paddock-style grazing practices, in which herds are rotated across sections of pasture. That allows the land to recover and reduces gases from cattle.
