Carbon Call: Potential Loser

"In the fast food industry, there is no greater head-in-the-sand carbon laggard than Burger King. Not only does the chain rely on beef and fossil-fueled energy (for cooking fuel, transportation and electricity for heavy-duty refrigerators and lighting), but they consistently score among the lowest in terms of taking action to measure and reduce their carbon footprint," Tamminen says.

The company has actively opposed carbon laws and markets, including using store signage to declare "Global Warming is Baloney."
