Green Kitchen Standard

How GREEN is your Kitchen?

  • 30% of the UK’s CO2 emissions come from food production and distribution.
  • On average, energy costs make up almost a quarter (22.5%) of overheads for the restaurant and catering industry.
  • The cost of food being wasted in the UK from the UK Hospitality and Food sector was estimated to £3 billion per year in 2016, with 18% of all food purchased in the sector being wasted, costing each outlet an average of £10,000 each year!

Despite this:

  • 75% of caterers say they do not have the tools and knowledge to make the environmental changes they would like in their catering operation; and
  • 45% of catering staff feel their business is not green or do not know anything about their business’ green credentials.

Tackling this problem could save your business money, time and resource and help protect the environment too. But where do you start? This is the question we will be answering in a special webinar this autumn we will be focusing on school and university catering and how our guest speakers have found the Green Kitchen Standard, a supportive framework to reduce their resource use, save money and aid greater staff engagement.

Featuring industry experts from the Carbon Trust and Soil Association Certification, we will discuss the current resource crisis in the catering industry; the latest research and guidance on environmental best practice; and introduce the Green Kitchen Standard - a certification developed by the Carbon Trust and Soil Association, which recognises caterers who are taking positive steps to sustainably manage energy, water and waste.

This will be followed by an interactive Q & A session.


Can’t wait till January? To find out more about how the Green Kitchen Standard could help your catering operation go GREEN, visit the website to read how Caterlink, Sheffield Teaching Hospital and Freeman Hospital became the first caterers in the country to achieve the award.
