On-site renewable energy design aims to cover 100% of the restaurant’s energy needs – plus it’s stunning.
We’re thrilled to introduce our newest flagship in Orlando, Florida: the first quick-service restaurant designed to be Net Zero Energy in the U.S. This McDonalds’s combines modern architecture with technology to create enough renewable energy on-site to cover its energy needs on a net annual basis. Scroll down to see just some of what makes this new restaurant unique.
To solidify the restaurant’s Net Zero Energy status, we will pursue the International Living Future Institute’s Zero Energy Certification over the next year. Data and learnings from the restaurant will also inform McDonald’s global sustainability efforts, including progressing toward the company’s science-based target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 36% in restaurants and offices by 2030 compared to a 2015 base year.
