Minimising Waste for Hospitality

Consumer intelligence

Consumers have environmental issues very much ‘front of mind’. They are highly engaged and interested in whether the products they buy are ecologically sound.

All businesses now need to demonstrate that they have sustainability policies, for instance in sourcing locally, reducing waste and minimising their carbon footprint. There are many organisations which are helping businesses become environmentally friendly, such as The Sustainable Restaurant Association and Hospitality UK.

According to a recent DEFRA report, in 2016 the UK generated 41.1 million tonnes of commercial waste, more than 5% of which was glass.
