At Yum!, being a good corporate steward is a fundamental commitment and an important part of our success. Our Global Citizenship & Sustainability Strategy, called the Recipe for Good, reflects our priorities for socially responsible growth, risk management and sustainable stewardship of our people, food and planet. We are certain that our business purpose and corporate citizenship are more interconnected and essential today than ever.
Strategy & Governance
We are focused on advancing progress and results in the most critical parts of our business including hiring and developing the best talent in an inclusive workplace, giving back to our communities, feeding people safely and responding to customers’ evolving preferences, minimizing our climate impact and choosing responsible suppliers and operating our restaurants efficiently. As we do so, we share progress with and promote transparency for stakeholders, including employees, customers, franchisees, shareholders and communities.
Yum! follows a process for identifying, prioritizing and engaging with stakeholders on issues identified through our materiality assessment. Engagement varies from one-time discussions to regular interaction while working on joint projects that help create strategy and programming. We aim to be as inclusive as possible in this engagement, listening to many points of view from both supportive and critical voices.
Reporting & Materiality
Regular reporting continues to be the primary way we share our progress and show transparency around our environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices. Our most recent materiality assessment guides our reporting and priority areas of focus which includes topics such as Food Safety, Energy, Emissions & Climate Change, and Talent Attraction, Engagement & Retention.
