GGA partner The Crown Estate has launched a food waste pledge across its Regent Street and St James’s holdings, home to some of the capital’s most innovative and distinctive eateries. The aim is to support restaurants in the locale to reduce their food waste by 25% by May 2020.
This exceeds the UK’s Courtauld Commitment, which strives for 25% reduction by 2025 and was inspired by the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal 12, which focuses on responsible consumption and production, aiming to reduce food waste by 50% per capita by 2030.
The Crown Estate has also taken the pledge at its HQ, working with its catering partner Vacherin, its in-house café which has made a commitment to reduce food waste. Working in partnership with the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA), restaurateurs will b supported with training workshops and the sharing best practice.
