In spite of a lot of talk about “food with integrity,” fast food chain Chipotle has a history of bad environmental transparency. Which begs the question: what does Chipotle have to hide?

Chipotle brands itself as a socially conscious alternative to fast food giants like McDonald’s. But even McDonald’s has been issuing comprehensive sustainability reports since 2002. Meanwhile, Chipotle refused to back up its claims of environmentalism with statistics even when shareholder activists called for them to do so in 2014.

It’s disingenuous for Chipotle to talk big about being “green” while it refuses to disclose the environmental impact of its operations. From animal waste to international transportation, Chipotle is covering up whole sectors of its environmental impact. We need to protect our planet from hidden corporate pollution. Will you help us crack Chipotle’s secret climate record?

Protect our planet and tell Chipotle to come clean about its secret pollution.

Chipotle’s track record leaves a lot of unanswered questions. We know the chain continues to import grass-fed beef from Australia all while touting its reliance on local ingredients. Even some of Chipotle’s “locally sourced food” travels thousands of extra miles so it can be processed in Chicago processing centers.

When the Climate Disclosure Project launched in 2013, it released climate data from over 80% of the world’s 500 largest companies. This data is crucial in enabling governments, consumers, and corporations to make informed decisions and take on our current climate crisis.

If Chipotle is so much greener than fast food chains like McDonald’s why isn’t it disclosing its own climate data?  

We know that when climate heroes come together globe to challenge corporations to do better by our planet, big things can happen. That’s why we need to mobilize now to tell Chipotle we won’t be fooled by its two-faced pollution record. In order to put the brakes on irreversible climate change, we need to protect our planet from Chipotle’s secret pollution.  

Tell Chipotle to follow the example of 80% of Global 500 companies and come clean about its pollution record.
