Sustainability through Restaurant Design

In order to help us and our restaurant owners reduce energy and water footprints, we have developed design standards that incorporate the use of leading industry products and practices in both new restaurants and updates to our existing locations. Continuing innovations in areas such as lighting, water systems, cooking equipment and menu displays allow us to lessen our impact on the environment while simultaneously improving the guest experience in our restaurants.

Waste Reduction

Reducing waste throughout our operations continues to be a key area of focus, for both our corporate facilities and across our restaurants. Waste management is a complex and constantly evolving field, and we recognize that variations in waste and recycling services between countries – and even between neighbouring cities – means that there needs to be many and effective solutions rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Through improved packaging practices, diversion of waste and support of communities in waste reduction efforts, we continue to seek out new initiatives and more effective ways to reduce, reuse and recycle, and therefore limit our environmental impact.
