McDonald's announces it will partner with franchisees and suppliers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions related to McDonald's restaurants and offices by 36% by 2030 from a 2015 base year in a new strategy to address global climate change. Additionally, McDonald's commits to a 31% reduction in emissions intensity, per metric ton of food and packaging, across its supply chain by 2030 from 2015 levels. This combined target has been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative, or SBTi. Through these actions, McDonald's expects to prevent 150 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions from being released into the atmosphere by 2030. This is the equivalent of taking 32 million passenger cars off the road for an entire year or planting 3.8 billion trees and growing them for 10 years. The target will enable McDonald's to grow as a business without growing its emissions. To reach its target, McDonald's will work across its supply chain, offices and restaurants to be more innovative and efficient through improvements such as LED lighting, energy efficient kitchen equipment, sustainable packaging, restaurant recycling, and by elevating and supporting sustainable agriculture practices. In collaboration with thousands of franchisees, suppliers and producers, McDonald's will prioritize action on the largest segments of its carbon footprint: beef production, restaurant energy usage and sourcing, packaging and waste. These segments combined, account for approximately 64% of McDonald's global emissions.

McDonald's has agreed to settle a U.S. labor board case on whether the fast food giant is liable for its franchisees' alleged labor law violations, Reuters reports. The settlement, which must be cleared by an NLRB judge, would let the company avoid a ruling that it is a "joint employer" of employees at its franchises and can be held accountable when franchisees break federal labor law, the report says.
