KFC Launches KFC Conscious, A Sustainable Outlet In Chennai

The world is moving towards sustainability and nothing could be better than this. Sustainability is the need of the hour and many brands are taking their steps toward the same. The shift is commendable no matter how big or small the step is. Like many brands, KFC too has been always seen making efforts to achieve sustainability all these years. In the same direction, KFC is launching a sustainable restaurant KFC Conscious in Chennai. 

Sustainable In Every Possible Way

The restaurant is trying to ensure that everything it does is a step towards sustainability. It ensures reduced carbon footprint with energy efficiency, using responsible materials and waste diversion. Solar panels with a capacity of 12 KW have been installed at the restaurant, which saves 18,000 W of energy annually. In order to ensure no wastage of water, water rejected from the RO systems will be used for flushing in washrooms. The inverted ductal units will be utilised which offer a 25 per cent annualised power savings. The brand is motivating its customers too by asking them to bring their own bags for takeaway and is planning to install bike racks and EV charging stations.
