Continuing Our Journey
In my new role leading Global Corporate Social Responsibility, Sustainability and Philanthropy, I am pleased to share with you our 2012 global sustainability highlights. In the accompanying summary, we have assessed our progress against the two-year goals we set in 2010. While we are pleased with our accomplishments to date, we know we can do more.
McDonald’s footprint is significant. So too are the opportunities and expectations. With approximately 1.8 million employees working for McDonald’s and over 5,000 franchisees, thousands of committed suppliers and the more than 69 million customers who visit us every single day in 118 countries, we can use our scale, scope and talent to make a positive difference in the world. Together for good.
In the year ahead we will take our sustainability efforts to the next level. We are working with both internal and external stakeholders to build on our foundation and refine our strategy, with a goal to identify new opportunities and set quantifiable targets to measure ongoing improvement. We will report back on our progress and thank you for your partnership in this important endeavor.
