ESG/Ethical Impact

A new KFC opens somewhere in the world every six hours, and we are committed to minimizing our environmental impact as we grow.We take pride in the exceptional quality of the food we serve. It’s what the Colonel stood for and what our customers expect. Driven by Science and Data Our approach to chicken welfare is based on the latest science, data and research into what constitutes the best standards of care when raising chickens for food that optimizes welfare, food quality, and sustainability outcomes. While raising chickens for food is our business model, we are dedicated to establishing best practices and following verified scientific thinking. Food production is an important part of the global conversation on sustainability. Our chicken welfare approach is part of an overall commitment to greater sustainability across our supply-chain. We remain committed to growing sustainably and being good stewards to the environment. We are using our scale to minimize the environmental impact with a focus on our restaurants and supply chains. Climate impact is one of our top material issues. We have a long history of climate action and amplified that by setting science-based targets. In 2021, we announced our target to reduce emissions by 46% by 2030, compared to a 2019 baseline, and our ambition to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. We have long been committed to reducing our environmental impact by minimizing deforestation risk. To support further progress toward no deforestation and using our scale to positively impact the broader industry, we endorsed the New York Declaration on Forests (NYDF) and the private sector goal of eliminating deforestation from the production of agriculture commodities such as palm oil, soy, paper and beef products. Yum! is committed to taking a more circular approach to sustainable packaging and waste, which starts with us first reducing, and then mindfully reusing or recycling the waste generated at our restaurants. Reducing waste from packaging, as well as operational waste including corrugated board, food and used cooking oil, are both tier one material issues for our business. At KFC parent company, Yum! Brands, our Good Growth strategy is grounded in the idea that our business will only endure if our brands are inclusive, sustainable, and reflective of evolving employee, franchisee and other stakeholder needs. As we grow, we’re identifying synergies with our Good priorities of our People, Food and Planet.
