Environmental stewardship is at the heart of how we do business. With more than 40,000 restaurants, and our rapid growth around the globe, we acknowledge our responsibility to be environmentally responsible corporate stewards. We are committed to reducing our environmental footprint for the benefit of our customers, stakeholders and planet, as we work to become the Defining Global Company that Feeds the World. We believe we can continue to maximize our profit growth and increase our shareholder value, while reducing our environmental impact and continuing to serve the food our customers love.

Yum! welcomes the opportunity to drive environmental sustainability priorities and best practices into our day-to-day business. We do this following the principles that we use to operate great restaurants, namely by developing the know how of our people and by setting breakthrough goals.

Under the direction of our Chief Sustainability Officer, the Global Sustainability team is actively working to deliver on Yum!'s global enterprise-wide goals for sustainability.
