Our journey to net zero and a climate-smart future

The impact of climate change is all too clear to see, right across the world. It will take collaborative action by governments, business, consumers, NGOs and communities to tackle this existential challenge and we are determined to play our part.

The centrepiece of our climate strategy is our ambition to achieve net zero across our value chain by 2040. 

We’re also focused on eliminating single-use plastics and transitioning to sustainable packaging as well as reducing food waste such as through partnerships for discounting and donating surplus food.

Our focus areas

Pursuing net zero carbon emissions

We are committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions across our value chain (Scopes 1, 2 and 3) by 2040.

Reducing, reusing and recycling our packaging

We are committed to eliminating unnecessary single-use plastic and moving 100% of our own brand packaging to be recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025.

Reducing food waste

We are committed to reducing food waste through prevention, reuse, recycling and recovery, including partnerships for discounting and donating surplus food.

Striving for net zero across our value chain

In 2021, we signed a Letter of Commitment to the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) Business Ambition for 1.5°C. To make this a reality, in 2022, we completed the mapping of our total carbon footprint across our value chain for our 2019 baseline. This has given us detailed visibility of exactly where our emissions lie, enabling the development of our plan to achieve net zero by 2040. With nearly 90% of our emissions in our Scope 3 supply chain, where we don’t have direct control, making reductions relies on collaboration with our suppliers, clients and brand partners. We are focusing our efforts on how we source ingredients, design our menus and help our customers to make more climate-friendly choices. We are also continuing our efforts to optimise energy efficiency and increase our use of renewables; employ sustainability criteria in the design and construction of our units; transition to sustainable packaging; and reduce food waste.

We are now in the process of finalising our science-based targets and submitting them for validation by the SBTi.
