We are taking aggressive action to reduce our direct energy use. By the end of FY2011, we were more than halfway toward our goal to reduce our per restaurant energy use by 15 percent by 2015 using 2008 as a baseline.
With more than 2,000 restaurants, Darden's physical footprint is one of the most significant ways we impact the environment.

We use water directly in our operations, primarily in our kitchens for preparing and cooking food, hand washing and cleaning, as well as in restaurant restrooms and for landscape irrigation. In FY2009, we set a corporate-wide goal to reduce our direct water usage by 15 percent per restaurant by 2015 using FY2008 as the baseline. By the end of FY2011, we had already exceeded our goal, having reduced on aggregate our per restaurant water use by approximately 17 percent.
