Our Approach
To Sustainability

From the start, we've been committed to doing the right thing. Today, our sustainability efforts align with our business practices and policies to continue our rich heritage of making a positive impact on society.


In 2013, McDonald's developed a Global Sustainability Framework with five focus areas or pillars - food, sourcing, planet, people and community. We set measurable, specific goals for some of these pillars to advance what we call “Our Journey Together. For Good.” To learn more about the five pillars and our progress, see McDonald’s 2012/2013 CSR Report and 2014 Good Business Report.
