What McDonald’s and Corporate Responsibility Have In Common
When we think of the global franchise McDonald’s, it’s unlikely we think of a company at the forefront of corporate environmental and sustainability. I personally have visions of a red French fry basket. And maybe a burger. And a multicolored slide.
What if I were to tell you that not do they have sustainable planet and food responsibility in their values, they have been leading the positive corporate shift in these areas for decades?
You’re probably raising your eyebrows in skepticism right now.
I don’t blame you.
In many ways, McDonald’s is one of our favorite companies to hate. Just ask the protesters who have been campaigning against them all summer. How could I forget the iconic Super Size Me documentary from 2004?
Add to that, if you type “McDonald’s sued” into Google you will likely see:
- For napkin;
- For obesity;
- For hot chocolate.
