2012 Global Best of GREEN

2012 Global Best of Sustainable Supply

At McDonald’s, it’s not just about the food we serve, but how we bring it to the table.

Since the beginning, we’ve been a values-based company. Doing the right thing has always come naturally. Over the years, continuous improvement has been core to who we are as a company. Our ability to identify best practices — whether they originate in our supply chain or in our restaurants — has helped us grow, while still fulfilling our commitment to using our size and scope to make a difference in the world.

To capture and recognize sustainability best practices from across the McDonald’s System, we’ve created the Global Best of Green and the Global Best of Sustainable Supply.

Just click on one of the tabs above — Best of Sustainable Supply or Best of Green to learn more about the ways all three legs of the McDonald’s System — our suppliers, our employees and our owner/operators – are bringing our values to life in real and tangible ways to make sustainability and profitability one in the same, good for business.

  • The submissions in this year’s report demonstrate that Mcdonald’s supply chain is world-class in its ability to provide a safe, sustainable and assured supply of food and products our customers love. Thank you to all suppliers for your contributions.
