McDonald's to recycle packaging globally by 2025

McDonald's began purchasing sustainable beef in 2016, and it plans to completely eliminate foam packaging by the end of this year.

Now only half of McDonald's packaging is made from sustainable materials and only 10 per cent of its outlets recycle, the company said.

Based on supplier commitments, McDonald's New Zealand said 100% of its "guest packaging" would come from renewable, recycled, or certified sources by this April.

"We have a responsibility to use our scale for good to make changes that will have a meaningful impact across the globe", said Francesca DeBiase, McDonald's chief supply chain and sustainability officer.

About 80 percent of McDonald's packaging is fiber-based, DeBiase said.

The fast-food chain is also switching to packaging made with renewable, recycled, or certified materials.

The spokesperson added: "Since 2015, we have been installing recycling units which can now be found in over 1,000 of our United Kingdom restaurants, enabling our customers to easily separate paper cups from other waste packaging in order for them to be recycled".

"We look forward to doing more and continuing to raise the bar on what it means to be a responsible company committed to people and the planet", DeBiase said.

Currently, 50% of its guest packaging comes from sustainable sources and only 10% of its restaurants are recycling.

McDonald's isn't new to the pursuit of waste reduction for reduced environmental impact as it first focused on sustainable packaging almost 25 years ago by establishing a connection with the Environmental Defense Fund. The company is seeking sources with certification from the Forest Stewardship Council.

The chain said it wants to be "part of the solution" when it comes to the problem of excessive waste and its many environmental impacts globally, even though the laws around this issue vary widely from location to location.

McDonald's says that it will be working with several different groups, including governments, environmental associations and industry experts, to reach these goals.

McDonald's has more than 37,000 restaurants in more than 100 countries.
