In 2022, Yum China initiated pilot projects such as fueling its logistic fleets with biodiesel, and recycling packaging waste generated in daily operations.

The recently released Yum China Nutrition and Health Policy highlighted the Company’s commitment to promoting balanced diets.
  • Firmly adhering to the ‘People First’ philosophy: The Company provided job security to its employees even during tough times, refrained from layoffs, increased medical coverage for eligible staff and their families, and provided them with food and medical supplies during the pandemic related lockdowns.
