Energy and water efficiency are a key part of our green building design and part of our roadmap to sustainable restaurant design. We are always exploring innovative ways to reduce energy usage in new and existing restaurants in order to minimize the impact our restaurants have on the environment. More efficient technologies for lighting, air conditioning, and refrigeration continue to be developed and we carefully evaluate and apply these technologies when they provide the right balance of environmental and economic benefits. When it comes to water, we do our part by using as little water as we can while serving our customers. We’ve developed requirements for our ice machines, dishwashers, restroom fixtures and irrigation systems designed to reduce our water use. New innovative technologies continue to be sought out and evaluated so they may be implemented to further reduce our water footprint.
