McDonald's's carbon footprint

McDonald's reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2021 at 530 Kt (+0.98/+0.2% y-o-y). At the sime time, carbon intensity declined to 23 t (-4.7 /-17.1% y-o-y).

McDonald's's Scope 3 emissions was up at 55,463 Kt (+1,758/+3.3% y-o-y). The growth has slowed compared to the trend since 4Q'17 (CAGR +55%).

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 -39 Kt per annum over the period of FY2022 - FY2030. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.

Also, the company commits to achieving net zero for Scope 3 by 2050, which translates into the estimated reduction of -1,913 Kt per annum over the period of FY2022 - FY2050. This science-based target is aligned with Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.
