ESG/Ethical Impact

2022 presented historic challenges to Cracker Barrel and the entire restaurant industry. COVID variants and outbreaks impacted our employees and guests, historic inflation raised our costs and made visiting Cracker Barrel more challenging for some, high gas prices affected both travel plans and travel patterns, and a tight labor market pressured our hiring and staffing. Despite these challenges, however, our teams demonstrated why Cracker Barrel is such a beloved and successful brand, delivering a great employee and guest experience while furthering our commitments to environmental responsibility, food safety and quality, providing a great workplace for our team, and operating under the highest standards of corporate governance and business ethics. We also worked closely with waste vendors to get a clearer understanding of our current recycling and diversion practices, providing a baseline against which to measure future progress. Finally, we’ve also added more information about food safety, quality assurance, and supplier engagement to this report in response to stakeholder feedback. We hope that these results will provide an additional level of clarity as we evaluate new efficiency and energy sourcing opportunities. ESG in general, and sustainability, climate change, and climate risk, in particular, are ever more a focus for our investors and for regulators. In addition to ongoing dialogue with our shareholders and stakeholders, we continue to monitor the changing regulatory landscape as we plan for the future. Cracker Barrel is led by a Board of Directors and four Board Committees comprised entirely of independent directors. The Board and each Committee conduct a robust self-evaluation at least annually to ensure that they are meeting the requirements of our Corporate Governance Guidelines, our By-Laws and their respective charters, and otherwise functioning in accordance with high standards of corporate governance and effectively overseeing the Company for the benefit of our shareholders. Our directors are committed to continuing education, and several of them seek or hold specialized certifications from such organizations as the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD.) Cracker Barrel has always placed corporate social responsibility at the heart of our business, and the Public Responsibility Committee of our Board has been in place for nearly 20 years. Beginning in 2020, we took additional steps to deepen our approach on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. Since then, we have implemented a number of new policies, programs and systems, including more structure to guide the developmentandimplementationofourESGstrategy.
