  • Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

    Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

    Yum! is committed to sustainable sourcing while focusing on reducing and mindfully reusing or recycling the waste generated at our restaurants. We have a goal to source 100% of paper-based packaging with fiber from responsibly managed forests and recycled sources by the end of 2022 across all brands. This effort, coupled with many others, has landed us a spot on the Dow Jones Sustainability North American Index year after year.

  • Carbon Conscious

    Carbon Conscious

    On average, our restaurants keep 1.2 million metric tons of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. That’s the equivalent of taking 280,000 cars off the road for a year! We do this through energy conservation, food donation and recycling efforts.
