Sustainability, do you go the extra mile?
Take a punt and enter the Footprint Awards 2012 – the UK foodservice industry’s only Awards programme exclusively dedicated to rewarding contributions to sustainability and environmental excellence within the foodservice industry.
Increasingly in the consumer mind and already included in every corporate tender – in both the public and private sectors – ‘sustainability’ has moved rapidly from being simply the latest trend in the commercial arena to becoming an integral and unavoidable part of everyday life. Today it is no longer enough for restaurants and foodservice operators merely to make a half-hearted nod in the direction of sustainability, everyone is expected to take this global concern seriously and play their part effectively.
The Footprint Awards are about recognising true initiatives and progress regarding sustainability – no matter how great or small – and foodservice businesses are being urged to enter. The Awards include recognition for Sustainable Use of Natural Resources, Sustainable Sourcing, Corporate Social & Environmental Responsibility, British Supply and Energy Efficiency.
