McDonald's Commits to Adopting Sustainable Packaging

Fast food giant McDonald's has made a commitment to adopting sustainable packaging and sources, aiming to go green by 2015. According to the website Supply Management, the restaurant's Sustainable Land Management Commitment (SLMC) will focus on five impactful areas: beef, poultry, coffee, palm oil and packaging.

"We will continue to focus our energy on developing sustainable sourcing practices and broadening our menu choices," said Jim Skinner, CEO of McDonald's, the source reported.

"Each year, we set goals that challenge us to put our resources toward strengthening communities and helping maintain a world that can carry all of us well into the future," he added.

It will focus on wood fiber-based packaging, ensuring that suppliers use legal and acceptable sources, according to the website Environmental Leader. McDonald's U.S. locations have already transitioned to Clarified Polypropylene for its McCafe beverage cups.

Furthermore, McDonald's will sponsor a three-year beef study of carbon emissions on 350 beef farms in the UK and Ireland. Additionally, it has joined the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, making the commitment to source only RSPO-certified palm oil by 2015.
