Wendy’s said it has pledged to slash energy consumption across its U.S. company-owned units by 20 percent per transaction, an effort it will complete by 2025.

In doing so, the QSR chain also announced a partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Challenge, which seeks to make commercial, public, residential and industrial buildings more energy efficient over the next 10 years. 

"Our restaurant development team has worked for several years to help our restaurants use energy more efficiently, and to share our best practices with our franchise community," Abigail Pringle, chief development officer for Wendy's, said in a statement. "We are excited to make this public commitment with the Better Buildings Challenge and look forward to showcasing our progress in the future." 

Wendy’s said it looks to its two LEED-certified restaurants for potential ways to integrate energy conservation into new and existing units.
