Deforestation

We recognize the global threat of deforestation, and we are committed to minimizing the risk as we continue to grow. All the fresh, never-frozen beef1 served in U.S. and Canadian restaurants, which represents more than 90% of our total restaurant footprint, comes from North American farms and ranches.   Our commitment also applies to our palm oil supply, for which we align to the globally recognized Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil and contribute to the production of certified sustainable palm oil. We plan on analyzing our total Scope 3 supply chain to identify risks such as deforestation as we conduct our lifecycle assessment scheduled for 2021.
