We're Committed to You and our World

McDonald’s South Africa is changing the way it builds its restaurants and has embarked on rolling out sustainable restaurants across the country.

Our first steel frame restaurant opened in Cape Town and their second in Pretoria in 2013, making these the first light steel frame informal eating out restaurant of this kind in South Africa. Restaurants use only LED lighting, which uses less energy, and has used environmentally friendly PVC piping.

We have invested in many sustainability measures in its restaurants over the past two years which have included building design, making sure that natural light and heat from the sun complement a minimum air-conditioning design which form part of a programme Solomon refers to as “Project Green and Growing”. This visionary programme targets a 20% saving in water consumption, a 20% saving on electricity consumption, 20% saving on costs and 20% saving on construction time as the brand continues on its strong growth path.
