AT MCMANUS PUBS WE’RE FOCUSED ON BECOMING A NET ZERO BUSINESS
We’re shining a spotlight on our sustainability and ethical credentials at McManus Pub Company. As part of this, we’ve taken the following steps towards becoming a more environmentally conscious business.
Carbon Emission Measurement – We partnered with Net Zero Now to measure our current carbon emissions. By understanding this, we can highlight the main focus areas – beef, beer & electricity - and track our progress.
One Planet Plate – We embrace the One Planet Plate core principles where possible - celebrating local, a lower carbon footprint, more sustainable meat and fish sources and dishes with more vegetables. Ask your server for details on our menu!
Smart dispense – You’ll find Heineken Smart Dispense systems in all of our venues. These systems produce fresher, colder beers whilst saving energy and thousands of litres of water per year.
100% Green Electricity – We’re working with British Gas, who are providing us with Zero Carbon Electricity
Minimising food waste – We’re working with different partners to reduce our food waste.
Emphasis on Suppliers – We’re growing the number of suppliers that we work with who are focused on achieving Net Zero, such as current partners Purity Brewing and Sapling Vodka.
MCMANUS PUBS - OUR NET ZERO JOURNEY
Every business has a role in building a better future, employees expect it, and customers prefer it. The UK hospitality sector can play a unique role in familiarising the public with the national ambition of achieving Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050. Strategy and business development manager Tom McManus talks about why he decided to lead McManus Pubs first steps and what he hopes to gain from being certified Net Zero.
