Reduce power usage and CO2 emissions by standardizing dining area lighting to LED lighting in new stores and remodeled stores.
Japan’s law concerning the rational use of energy has been revised and requires a minimum 1 percent reduction in CO2 emissions. As one measure for saving energy, McDonald’s Japan began introducing and expanding LED lighting as the standard for dining area lighting at new stores and remodeled stores starting in FY2010.
- A reduction of approximately 45 percent in power usage caused by dining area lighting;
- 18-ton reduction in annual CO2 emissions per store, which is equivalent to approximately 11 percent of annual CO2 emissions; and
- Approximately 400 stores, as of October 2011, had introduced LED lighting as the standard.
