Our Brands

Restaurant Brands International owns three of the world's most prominent and iconic quick service restaurant brands – Burger King, Tim Hortons, and Popeyes. These independently operated brands have been serving their respective guests, franchisees and communities for decades.

We're committed to the simple principle of doing what's right . As one of the largest restaurant companies in the world, it is both our responsibility and opportunity to advance the issue of sustainability in the food service industry.

That's where the Restaurant Brands for Good plan comes in.

It's the framework for serving guests the food and drinks they love, while contributing to a sustainable future and having a positive social impact in the communities we serve.

We recognize that the world is evolving and maturing in its respect for sustainable business practises. Guests are increasingly concerned with health and wellness and want to know more about where their food comes from. Continued major weather events, a changing climate, and the rising expectations of guests and external stakeholders with regard to defining social responsibility challenges the way we source and deliver our products. Increasing global levels of inequality and social unrest are making it more vital than ever to continue investing in our team members and our communities. Our sustainability priorities are informed by these important trends influencing our industry and our work.

Restaurant Brands for Good is built on our first materiality assessment which was conducted to identify the most important sustainability issues for our business. Over the past year, we benchmarked ourselves in relation to our industry peers and competitors, assessed guests' priorities through consumer research and social media, captured external stakeholder perspectives through Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) requests and investor inquiries, and cross-referenced these topics against an assessment of business risks in order to gather key insights and concerns to consider. Then, we identified the areas where we believe we can push the industry forward, creating waves of change that will be good for the entire planet.

We are also making a long-term commitment to support the achievement of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, and evaluated where Restaurant Brands International can contribute and focus resources to help drive the greatest impact.

This process identified our ten priority topics, which form the three key pillars of Food, Planet, and People & Communities . We will focus on these pillars as we work to make an impact in the industry and bring our sustainability vision to life.
