Article via Nation's Restaurant News
"Yum Brands announced Monday the company’s plans to reduce greenhouse gases by 46% by the year 2030, along with achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050. The Louisville, Ky.-based parent company of Pizza Hut, KFC, Taco Bell and The Habit Burger Grill joins other restaurant chains in outlining sustainability goals (or celebrating achieving them) in 2021, including Dunkin’, Wendy’s, and Chipotle, which will also be tying executive compensation to improving environmental transparency.
These new initiatives from Yum are part of the company’s larger goal to address climate change.
“Climate change is one of the top priorities of our Recipe for Good strategy, and we’re investing significantly in sustainable growth to address this issue by working closely with our brands, franchisees and suppliers,” David Gibbs, Yum Brands CEO, said in a statement. “We believe in the collective power of Yum! and our brands to make a positive impact, and that holds true when it comes to creating a healthier future for our customers, communities and the environment.”"
