McDonald’s focuses on sustainability

McDonald’s announced its 2012 Best of Sustainable Supply Chain winners by highlighting 51 stories of supply chain partners addressing challenges to help improve food sources, the environment, communities and employee wellness across the world.


Supply chain achievements spanned diverse areas including meeting zero waste-to-landfill targets and taking the plastic out of plastic bottles. Collectively, they demonstrated the power of sharing responsibility by letting employees lead and by sharing experience by applying global lessons locally.

A panel of executives and external experts, including BSR, Conservation International, Food Animal Initiative and World Wildlife Fund selected the final 2012 Best of Sustainable Supply winners. These projects were selected based on either measurable results or innovation.
