Building sustainable, collaborative partnerships with our suppliers
To us, pride is our offers means that each element of our brands’ offer is sourced in a responsible way, and that we provide information to allow our guests to make informed choices. We are working in collaboration with our suppliers to understand and improve the environmental credentials of the products we buy and remain focused on maintaining high levels of animal welfare in our supply chain.
We’re working hard to reduce emissions
The food industry in particular has an important part to play in climate change, as food supply chains are a significant factor in rising greenhouse gas emissions, the reduction of biodiversity and the consumption of water.
We have measured our baseline emissions and have used this to create a roadmap for reduction and have begun to trial menu changes which will reduce the emissions of the food we serve. Animal welfare remains a key focus area, and we are proud that due to our strong relationship with suppliers and clear policies on welfare we have achieved BBFAW Tier 3 rating for animal welfare. We are also conscious of the food industry's significant impact on biodiversity which will be a future focus area on which we plan to collaborate with the wide sector.
Reducing waste is critical element
Food waste is an important focus of our sustainability strategy. Not only is food waste a waste of precious resources, if it is disposed of to landfill it emits powerful greenhouse gases. Therefore we have set the target to halve food waste by 2030. We have already made considerable progress in this area, reducing food waste in the supply chain and in our sites. We also began working with Fareshare in 2019, distributing unavoidable waste in the supply chain to communities, and we have successfully launched Too Good to Go in Toby Carvery and Stonehouse which saves on average 10,000 meals a week for disposal. In addition, when we do have to dispose of food it goes to anaerobic digestion, a process which generates energy.
