Michael Quinlan, Chairman & CEO
McDonald’s Corporation
1 Kroc Drive
Oakbrook, IL 60523

Dear Mr. Quinlan:

On behalf of the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Region 5, I would like to personally congratulate the McDonald’s Corporation for achieving the Green LightsŪ Retail Partner of the Year Award.

McDonald’s has demonstrated environmental leadership by becoming a partner in the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Lights Program. In addition, McDonald’s achievement of incorporating green lights into the new construction of approximately 5,000 restaurants as well as retrofitting many restaurants has resulted in substantial energy savings and more importantly significant reductions in air pollution.

We appreciate McDonald’s exemplary effort in protecting the outdoor environment, and providing a healthy indoor environment for your employees and customers. I look forward to hearing more about your environmental and educational efforts as we approach Earth Day.

Sincerely yours,


David A. Ullrich
Acting Regional Administrator
