Wendy’s® is committed to driving positive change across the communities in which we serve. We continue to accelerate progress through our corporate responsibility platform, Good Done Right, and our key focus areas of Food, People and Footprint.

Released today, our 2022 Corporate Responsibility Report reflects Wendy’s achievement of key milestones, including setting new goals to cut greenhouse gas emissions, meeting a 10-year goal related to responsibly sourcing pork in the U.S. and Canada, and supporting the Dave Thomas Foundation of Adoption® and its mission to find forever families for children in foster care with a record-breaking year of fundraising.

Wendy’s Good Done Right Goals

We are committed to collaborating across our System and with key stakeholders to champion Good Done Right and will continue to report progress against our goals, which include:

  • People: Increase the representation of underrepresented populations among our Company’s leadership and management, as well as the diversity of our franchisees
  • Footprint:
    • Compared to a 2019 base year, by 2030, reduce:
      • Absolute Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 47%
      • Scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions intensity by 47% per metric ton of purchased goods
      • Scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions intensity by 47% per franchise restaurant
    • Sustainably source 100% of our customer-facing packaging in the U.S. and Canada by 2026
