We’re committed to eliminating deforestation from our global supply chains, and promoting responsible forestry and production practices that benefit people, communities and the planet. We work in partnership with our suppliers to make this happen.
“McDonald’s is taking significant steps to protect the world’s biologically diverse tropical forests and grasslands, and to make no conversion, deforestation or forest degradation a reality in their supply chains. WWF partnered with McDonald’s to create its Commitment on Forests in 2015, which included identifying the company’s highest risk commodities and geographies to help prioritize efforts. Since then, McDonald’s has played a leading role in testing and implementing recently launched guidance from the Accountability Framework initiative which consolidates effective practices that ensure critical biomes are not compromised at the expense of commodity production.”
“As McDonald’s Franchisee in Paraguay, Servicios Rapidos is proud to partner with our suppliers and the corporation to ensure the high-quality beef that is produced in Paraguay meets our global Commitment on Forests. The beef industry in Paraguay is demonstrating that the country is leading on conserving forests and producing beef sustainably. We are excited that the Global Roundtable on Sustainable Beef Conference will be hosted in Paraguay in 2020 and will help to showcase the leadership underway in Paraguay.”
“We have worked with McDonald’s for over five years, implementing a real digital transformation to drive their decision-making process and supply chain efficiency globally. As a leading Agtech company, dealing with significant challenges worldwide, we must use the most advanced technologies, multi-data sources, data analytics, sensors and innovative methods to build business cases for action. That’s exactly what we have being doing with McDonald’s so far.”
“McDonald's is an active member of the Tropical Forest Alliance (TFA), a platform hosted by the World Economic Forum that brings together governments, civil society and the private sector to address the critical issues of deforestation and forest degradation. McDonald's leadership within the TFA demonstrates a growing commitment to driving transformational change not only in their own supply chain, but also more broadly across industries and jurisdictions.”
“Finding the balance between competing pressures on forests and other natural resources is a critically important and complex challenge. We applaud McDonald’s for their ongoing efforts to not just avoid unsustainable practices in their supply chains, but to work constructively with their suppliers, governments, NGOs and communities to find practical and positive solutions.”
“McDonald's have demonstrated a commitment to leadership, clear focus on practical implementation and results, and a collaborative approach, which to date has made the implementation of its Commitment on Forests a relatively quick, efficient and transparent process. This is despite all of the complexities linked to the different supply chains and the sustainability challenges in the producing regions of their raw materials. Proforest is proud to provide technical support to McDonald's on this journey towards deforestation-free supply chains.”
