Packaging

McDonald’s® aspiration is to source all of our food and packaging sustainably.

Sustainable Goals

Sustainable packaging goals

One of our 2020 sustainable sourcing goals is to source 100% of our fibre-based packaging from recycled or certified responsibly managed forests where no deforestation occurs. McDonald’s uses an internal global scorecard tool called the Eco-Filter to help inform our packaging decisions.

A Better Plastic

A Better Plastic

McDonald’s worked with packaging supplier HAVI Global Solutions to transition to Clarified Polypropylene (CPP) for McCafé® beverage cups, delivering environmental benefits while maintaining performance. The CPP package uses 20% less material compared to polyethylene terephthalate (PET).
