Environmental, Social, and Governance
In 2021, as we continued to Dine Together, we evolved our purpose and our values to grow and connect others to our ESG commitment and actions. Driven by the focus areas of People, Planet, Food, and Governance, we were better able to concentrate on projects and strategies that reflect the interests of our team members, franchisees, guests, investors and others. This helps us honor the relationships, values, and commitments that have helped to make us the franchisor of the world’s favorite — and one of the largest — casual-dining and family-dining brands.
We’re also proud to share that we’ve recently conducted our first materiality assessment. We’ve aligned with the SASB framework and used it as our guide in assessing our business and societal aspirations. Our ESG efforts are an essential part of our business, thoroughly integrated into every aspect of our operations. Since the beginning, we have operated with a high ethical standard. It’s an integral part of us, imbedded in our DNA, and together we will continue to innovate and improve.
We invite you to join us as we Dine Together and continue to raise the bar in every community where we operate today, and in the future.
