What Chipotle is doing to be greener


Chipotle unveiled what it is calling a new “responsible restaurant design," which uses energy-efficient equipment and systems, and 100% renewable energy from wind and solar power through the purchase of certified renewable energy credits. Additional features include electric charging stations at select locations, biodegradable products such as cutlery, straws and bowls, cactus leather chairs, and artwork made from recycled husks.

The company plans to have more than 100 of its new locations in 2024 using the all-electric equipment, as well as other elements from the new design.
