Total Energies Marketing (Fiji) Pte Ltd, a wholly-owned sub­sidiary of TotalEnergies SE of France, and Vuvale Restaurants (Fiji) Ltd, the exclusive operator of all McDonald’s restaurants in Fiji, have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)

“We are delighted to partner Mc­Donald’s Fiji to extend our long-standing partnership from the pre­sent retail services, to supporting their decarbonization journey.

Today’s MoU signals the start to ex­plore solarization projects for all Mc­Donald’s restaurants and offer EV charging services to their customers, and commercial and fleet partners.
The partnership is a contribution to get to net zero emissions by 2050, to­gether with society,” said Dennis-Mi­chael Cuaycong, Managing Direc­tor, TotalEnergies Marketing (Fiji).

“McDonald’s is one of the world’s largest restaurant chains. Every­thing we do leaves a lasting impact on the planet.

We believe it is our responsibility to ensure our impact is positive. That’s why we’re so committed to using our scale for good in Fiji.

And we are working hard to pro­mote sustainability, renewability, and environmental care in all our restaurants. Because at the end of the day, we only have one planet. And it’s up to all of us to work together in protecting it.

TotalEnergies is the ideal partner for McDonald’s Fiji, given their ex­pertise in renewable energies and driving new technology initiatives, in particular with industrial part­ners, to reduce GHG emissions,” said Marc McElrath, McDonald’s Fiji Managing Director.

Since 2018, TotalEnergies in Fiji has started to equip all its company-owned service stations with solar panels.

All 22 TotalEnergies stations in Fiji will be solarized by end 2023, which will contribute to the reduction of around 9,000 tons of carbon dioxide over an average 25-year operational period.

TotalEnergies and McDonald’s have worked together for over 10 years in Fiji and they have a strong business partnership.

The companies are also exploring joint development in other projects including TotalEnergies’ Wash ser­vices and marketing partnership ini­tiatives at McDonald’s restaurants, McCafé outlets, and TotalEnergies’ service stations.
