Our stakeholders are central to guiding the important CSR decisions and actions we make. That’s why our focus is to create positive change through our CSR actions that extends to all of our key stakeholders including employees, franchisees, suppliers, investors, customers and the local communities we serve.
Our franchisees are our most important partner in the implementation of practices, including sourcing and community impact. Over the past 18 years, we have built strong relationships with them to enable collaboration and partnership. Our existing structure for engaging this important group in the U.S. includes:
- Restaurant Supply Chain Solutions (RSCS) Board of Directors
- Brand Franchise Associations/Board of Directors
We also partner with other key stakeholders to gain important perspectives in areas related to our most important CSR impacts and continually share our progress in the following key areas:
- Diversity and Inclusion
- Health and Nutrition
- Supply Chain Innovation and Management
- Animal Welfare
- Energy and Water Use
- Green Building Design
- Waste and Packaging
- Hunger Relief
- Community Engagement and Volunteerism
- Human Rights
We continue to explore how we work with all current and future stakeholders to best identify and prioritize our CSR efforts that create positive impacts for our business and society alike.
