Read the full story from Politico.

Wendy’s isn’t the first company that comes to mind when thinking about sustainability. Customers don’t necessarily want to pay for it, either, according to Liliana Esposito, the company’s chief corporate affairs and sustainability officer.

But that doesn’t mean the fast-food giant isn’t taking steps to incorporate greener practices. Wendy’s is working to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by almost half compared with 2019 levels and trying to make all consumer-facing packaging sustainable by 2026.

POLITICO talked with Esposito about the fast-food industry, the company’s climate goals, whether it plans to offer any meat alternatives and the issue of food waste.
