McDonald's Malaysia to invest $15.5m on green initiatives

This is in line with the company’s global sustainability Scale for Good strategy.

MD and operating partner Azmir Jaafar told The Malaysian Reserve that the fast-food operator is planning to open 200 new restaurants over the next decade, in which up to RM 300,000 will be used in each outlet on green technologies to reduce carbon footprints.

According to Jaafar, McDonald’s Malaysia had spent RM22 million ($5.7m) to incorporate green technologies in new restaurants and retrofitted the existing ones for the past three years. To date, 124 McDonald’s restaurants in Malaysia are now equipped with at least one green initiative.

The new "green" restaurants are fitted with green technology solutions such as solar photovoltaic roofing, indoor light-emitting diode lights, thermal solar water heater, rainwater harvesting system, smart thermostats, and hybrid air-conditioning system.
