McDonald’s plans to reduce greenhouse emissions from their restaurants, corporate offices and supply chain by more than 30 percent by 2030. They’re the first restaurant chain with goals backed by the Science Based Targets initiative. The company expects to decrease its total emissions by more than 150 million tons.

AB InBev, the parent company of Anheuser-Busch and Budweiser beer, has ambitious plans to purchase electricity only from renewable sources for its worldwide operations in seven years. The first step includes Bud Light. The goal is for all operations in the company’s 12 Budweiser breweries across the U.S. to be powered by renewable energy.

Budweiser plants outside the U.S. will also switch to all-renewable energy, with all products planned to transition by 2025. The new status will be denoted by the label “100% Renewable Energy”.
