Responsible Leadership

We are committed to using our scale for good: good for people, for our industry, and for the planet. From simplifying ingredients to being nutritionally mindful; from reducing our waste impact to advancing the industry on sustainable and humane sourcing; from being a good employer for millions to giving help to those most in need via RMHC.

Local Integration

McDonald’s has traveled far but we stay in sync with society in each of our countries, responding to local needs and integrating with local culture. Our restaurants are typically locally-owned, staffed by crew who live nearby, and who proudly give back to their community via hundreds of thousands of local programs.
