Repost from the Environmental Leader:
Tim Hortons, Canada’s largest publicly listed restaurant chain, says it is on track to meet all its environmental stewardship and supply chain targets.
Hortons, which is listed on both the Toronto and New York Stock Exchanges, and operates over 500 U.S. locations, released the results in its first sustainability report.
The company said it met goals to implement a business partner and supplier code of conduct, and to develop an independent audit and verification program for its coffee sourcing. The coffee audit program will begin this year with all suppliers participating.
Tim Hortons also registered three restaurants for LEED certification, beating a goal of certifying two pilot restaurants.
The company says it is also on target to reduce packaging within its supply chain and manufacturing operations by five percent by 2012, and to cut energy and water use for all corporate buildings and new restaurant construction by five percent by 2011, from a 2008 baseline. Interested in more..
