Harnessing the grassroots energy, innovation and passion of our employees
We are committed to responsible stewardship of the enviroment and we believe our business success is inseperable from our initiatives to use fewer resources and generate less waste.
This commitment runs through our operations behind the scenes and front of house with guests and extends to encouraging our employees to reduce energy use at home.
Through our CodeGreen initiatives we have introduced targets for reducing carbon emissions, conserving energy and looking to renewable energy sources, cutting water consumption, and recycling more of our waste.
We've come a long way, and learned a great deal. We still have a long way to go.
All our UK restaurants are part of the Green Earth Appeal’s Food For Thought programme which offsets the carbon footprint of the meals produced in our kitchens.
We add an optional 99p to each bill which goes to Food For Thought to fund tree-planting and provide education and resources to create a sustainable lifestyle in some of the poorest communities on the planet.
To date we have donated more than £100,000 to Food for Thought and we have planted 137599 trees, officially confirmed by the Green Earth Appeal.
As a partner of the United Nations Environment Programme, the Green Earth Appeal works closely with charities operating in rural communities in Africa and South America. It supplies trees, seeds and agroforestry training to empower these communities to restore tree cover to their lands, providing a food source, protecting the environment and helping to preserve traditional livelihoods and cultures for generations.
