We encourage all of our suppliers to minimise the amount of packaging used on incoming goods, while being mindful of food hygiene requirements. Wherever possible we use ‘environmentally caring’ foodstuffs, e.g. tuna fish caught in dolphin friendly nets, free range eggs etc. As a business we will not knowingly purchase foods that contain GM ingredients. All of our suppliers confirm in writing that they comply with our policy.
Bottled water served at events at 41 Portland Place is dispensed onsite from a Vivreau Water Filter. This means we don’t need regular water deliveries, thus reducing traffic congestion and pollution levels. Plus, all water bottles are washed after every use and reused which means less waste is created.
We are advocates for ecologically friendly kitchen equipment, actively seeking energy efficient solutions that minimise waste and the use of hazardous cleaning chemicals.
At 41 Portland Place we recycle glass, cans, paper and cardboard and our printer cartridges.
All staff receive training on the key requirements and impact of our Environmental Policy. We also include environmental issues as part of their monthly safety audit.
