McDonald’s Corp., one of the world’s largest buyers of beef, said on Monday it’s targeting net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across its operations by 2050. 

The burger chain, which has more than 39,000 restaurants in 119 countries, said it was working with the Science Based Targets initiative group to evolve climate change goals it had set in 2018.
