Yum Brands works on science-based carbon emissions reduction targets

Yum Brands has begun the necessary work to join the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi), according to Jon Hixson, vice president for global government affairs and sustainability for Yum. 

If Yum, the parent company of Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and KFC, ultimately makes a commitment and sets emissions reduction targets in accordance with SBTi standards, it would become the second restaurant group do so based on current commitments. McDonald’s was the first such group to commit, pledging to cut greenhouse gas emissions at McDonald’s restaurants and offices by 36% by 2030 from a 2015 base year and cut emissions intensity per metric ton of food and packaging across its supply chain by 31% by 2030 from 2015 levels.
