Chipotle Undertakes Environmental Sustainability Project

DENVER — Chipotle Mexican Grill plans to divert half of all of its restaurant waste from landfills by 2020. Since 2015, the Denver-based fast-casual restaurant chain has made strides toward reducing the amount of food and packaging waste bound for landfills, increasing its diversion rate from 31 percent that year to 40 percent in 2017.

To reach this goal, Chipotle and its partners are implementing several best practices to reduce the amount of food waste, adjust services, recycle and compost waste, audit its programs and donate leftover food.
