McDonald’s sets net-zero emissions target for UK business by 2040

Plans have been announced for major changes to its supply chain in the next three years

McDonald’s will open its first “net-zero” store in the UK next month, while announcing plans to slash emissions across the country by 2040.

The fast food chain said it will reach net zero – meaning it emits no more greenhouse gases than it absorbs through its business – across the world by the middle of the century.

In the UK and Ireland its net-zero target has been set a decade earlier.

In November, the company plans to open a new burger restaurant in Shropshire which will be built to a “UK industry net-zero emissions standard”.

The site will be a blueprint for other new-build McDonald’s in the future, it said.

From 2023 all new furniture in McDonald’s sites will be made with recycled or certified materials, and will be designed to be recycled or reused when no longer needed.

Packaging will also be made with materials that are renewable, recycled or from certified sources by 2024.
