We aim to reduce the amount of energy we use during the manufacturing, storage and distribution of our products and, in doing so, reduce our carbon emissions and overall carbon footprint. We support the government’s ESOS scheme and intend to use its findings to further reduce our carbon footprint.
We are continually reducing the amount of waste we produce. Our objective is to send no waste to landfill and to maximise re-use of waste by segregating it and finding sustainable options for re-using or recycling wherever possible.
We’re keen to reduce and recycle packaging and have significantly benefited our cake businesses by reducing packaging by 37% thanks to different outer cases.
We aim to reduce the amount of water we use, and to minimise our impact on water and effluent discharges. We are keen to extend this approach to our supply chain.
We are only just starting to monitor many of these issues formally, and will report in greater detail in due course.
