The owner of Burger King wants to make its cars, buildings and even its cows greener

Restaurant Brands International, which also operates Popeyes and Tim Hortons, on Wednesday vowed to cut its emissions by 50% by 2030.

The burger chain, known for its innovative marketing, wants to focus more on operational execution to make up ground with its competitors.

The burger chain will introduce a trio of "Keep it Real Meals" named for Cornell Haynes, or Nelly, Larissa Machado, or Anitta, and Chase Hudson, or LilHuddy.

The former Domino’s executive was initially named COO with the chain in April. He will be tasked with turning around the fast-food chain.

The craved item bolstered sales at Carrols' burger restaurants, but a glut of competition dampened business for its chicken outlets.

The burger chain, which has underperformed its competitors in recent years, believes speedier remodels, better operations, more digital and balanced marketing can turn it around.

Sales at Burger King recovered but remained lower than many of its rivals while Popeyes lost some momentum.

The fines and back pay extend back to the first day Chicago's law went into effect. The penalty is the largest ever assessed for violations of the city's labor laws.

While operators use signs to complain about the lack of workers, employees use them to stage walkouts, says RB’s The Bottom Line.
