McDonald’s UAE vehicles hit biodiesel landmark
The fast-food company said this was the latest milestone of its biodiesel programme, which gets used cooking oil from their restaurants converted to 100% biodiesel to fuel their vehicles.
Walid Fakih, CEO at McDonald's UAE, said: "Focusing on the environment is key for us at McDonald's UAE.
“We are glad to work on this programme with Neutral Fuels which helped us reduce the amount of carbon emissions, and we will continue to promote sustainable and regenerative practices - for communities today and in the future.”
The biodiesel programme, launched in 2011, stems from a partnership between McDonald's UAE and Neutral Fuels aimed at reducing the carbon footprint of the brand's restaurants.
Its trucks have travelled millions of kilometres on 100% biodiesel since the partnership began, saving more than 25 million kg of carbon emissions.
