KFC Philippines has further reduced its carbon footprint in the country with its 64th solar-powered store, according to a report by the Manila Bulletin.

With this initiative, the quick service restaurant (QSR) has established itself as an eco-friendly energy user in the region.

So far, KFC is said to have installed solar photovoltaic (PV) systems across 64 stores, which generate around 2.6GWh of clean energy while displacing 606,164kg of carbon emissions annually.

The publication quoted KFC Philippines general manager Maria Judith Marcelo saying: “We are committed to our journey toward sustainable growth and being model stewards to the environment, which is why we really walk our talk when it comes to planet-friendly initiatives.

“Aside from ramping up our solar panel project, we also pioneered the use of e-bikes for delivery in several branches while also shifting to more sustainable packaging.”

The QSR brand is said to have set a target to install solar panels on 80 of its store rooftops by the end of this year.
