We have measured our overall business carbon footprint in conjunction with the Zero Carbon Forum and are establishing a plan to reach net zero as a business. We aim to publicise our targets in the next 12 months.
We have measured the carbon footprint of all our menu items in conjunction with Klimato and included information on the menu to help customers to make low carbon choices.
Over 50% of our menu is plant based; we do not use beef and very little dairy in our supply chain – reducing the growing pressure on natural resources.
We only use Fair trade coffee and sustainably sourced fish across the estate.
All electricity purchased as a business is from renewable sources as of 2019.
We use up to date energy efficient equipment across our sites, incl. LED lights, energy efficient extract systems & air conditioning.
We’ve focused on reducing electricity consumption which has led to a 5% reduction in electricity usage over the last 12 months – this includes ensuring all equipment is turned off overnight, and phased switch on in the morning to ensure only necessary equipment is turned on.
We have started roll out of gas free kitchens, with our 2 most recent openings being gas free. Combined with purchase of renewable electricity this has eliminated scope 1 and 2 emissions from those sites. We plan to continue to roll out and will look to retro fit all electric kitchens to existing sites in the future.
Our website runs on a 100% renewable energy hosting platform.
