Twitter Chat RECAP: Meet Yum! Brands at #3pYumChat


Today, Yum! Brands and TriplePundit hosted a special Twitter Chat about its environmental commitments – at #3pYumChat.

The sustainability experts at Yum! Brands - Roger McClendon, Chief Sustainability Officer and Laurie Schalow, VP of Corporate Social Responsibility, both engaged with TriplePundit on Twitter to address the company’s goals, successes, and opportunities for global sustainability.

The parent company of Taco Bell, KFC, and Pizza Hut reports annually on its CSR performance, which it views as key to creating positive change. The four strategic pillars for Yum! Brands within CSR are: food, people, community and environment.

During this chat, we focused on the environmental pillar. We learned about how Yum! Brands is an environmental steward, and has created three global iconic brands that people recognize and trust.

A few topics discussed included:

  • Green buildings
  • Waste recovery and recycling
  • Energy efficiency
