At Darden, we know having clear governance and accountability mechanisms are essential to meeting our sustainability commitments. Since we began this journey, we've continually adapted our systems and structures to maintain strong performance while planning for future challenges. Today, governance for our sustainability strategy and commitments resides at three levels: Board of Directors, Executive Leadership and Senior Management.
Darden's vision is to be a company that positively affects our guests, employees, communities and business partners – quite simply, we want to be a company that matters.
Darden takes a resource-focused approach to sustainability. Our goal is to reduce the amount of resources we use at every restaurant and manage the inputs and outputs of our direct operations.
Darden focuses on opportunities where we can improve the sustainability, nutrition and safety of our supply chain by partnering with key suppliers, scientists, industry and communities.
