McDonald's's carbon footprint

McDonald's reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2020 at 529 Kt (-70 /-11.7% y-o-y). Also positively, carbon intensity was down at 28 t (-0.5 /-1.8% y-o-y).

McDonald's's Scope 3 emissions increased to 53,705 Kt (+749/+1.4% y-o-y). The growth rate declined vs. the previous periods (CAGR +71% since 4Q'17).

The company is committed to reducing Scope 1 + 2 by 36% by 2030 from a base year 2015, which translates into the estimated reduction of -35 Kt per annum over the period of FY2021 - FY2030. This science-based target is aligned with Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 2°C above pre-industrial levels.

Also, the company commits to achieving net zero for all Scopes by 2050, which translates into the estimated reduction of -1,808 Kt per annum over the period of FY2021 - FY2050. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.
