LEON – Carbon Neutral Burgers & Fries

Last updated: 20th September 2022

Naturally Fast Food brand LEON has become the first to serve a carbon-neutral burger and fries range in its more than 60 locations across the UK. For this, LEON is measuring, reducing, and offsetting the carbon footprint of their burgers and fries, with support from ClimatePartner.

We measure the CO2 emissions from the whole supply chain which includes all of LEON’s ingredients, any packaging used and its waste, as well as emissions from preparations in their restaurant kitchens. With our support, the resulting carbon footprint is offset with rainforest conservation and afforestation projects in Latin America, as well as a progressive new afforestation project in the UK.

“Being kind to the planet has been at the heart of LEON since we launched in 2004. We are working to reduce our emissions and achieve a net zero target by 2030, offsetting unabated emissions, with reforestation and afforestation projects, is an important commitment for us as we work towards that target.”

Kirsty Saddler, Values and Sustainability Director, LEON
