At Chipotle we believe that one burrito may not change the world, but the way we make it might. Our new Real Foodprint is the first, radically transparent sustainability tracker of its kind, showing the sustainable impact you're helping make on the planet by choosing Chipotle's real, responsibly-sourced ingredients versus conventional ones. Together, we will continue to take steps to Cultivate a Better World.

THE MEASURE OF OUR ACTIONS IS IN YOUR REAL FOODPRINT

With Real Foodprint, you'll see how the Chipotle difference is real. From how ingredients are raised, grown, and cared for, Chipotle's impact on real food and the planet starts at the source.

Over the past 25 years, we’ve built a food system that incorporates award-winning animal welfare standards, encourages organic growers, and uses industry leading local produce sourcing for our restaurants. We believe Real ingredients are better: better for you, better for people as a whole, and better for the planet.

METRICS Powered By HowGood

HowGood, an independent research company with the world’s largest database on food sustainability, assessed each of our 53 ingredients and compared them to the industry average agricultural impact against five key metrics.

Real Foodprint takes Chipotle’s award-winning sourcing standards across each of its 53 ingredients into account to help show the average impact that each Chipotle order helps make on the planet. The positive change in impact for each measure is the calculated difference between Chipotle’s sourcing standards and conventional, industry average standards.

HowGood utilizes advanced statistical methodology and over 450 third party scientific and peer reviewed studies. Data sources and certifications include third party certifications, peer reviewed studies, scientific research, industry reports, government data, investigative journalism, NGO research, expert opinion, and international regulations.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND REAL FOODPRINT

Bill Nye isn't just the science guy, he's also a Chipotle fan. We asked him to break down our five Real Foodprint sustainability metrics, from what they mean to how they're measured.

Food with integrity takes Real Transparency

Real food takes real integrity and transparency. It also takes accountability. So while we’ve outlined our goals and actions in our Sustainability Report, we know our work is far from done. As we set new goals and challenge ourselves to reach higher, we’ll share them. We’re working to constantly reduce our impact on the planet so that together we can continue to Cultivate a Better World.
