The UK has pledged to reduce overall net zero carbon emissions by 2050, which is something we want to help make happen. So we’ve spent some time evaluating our carbon footprint and creating a strategy aimed at improving our impact on planet earth.
Here at The Southdowns, we’re always on the look-out for new ways to reduce the environmental impact of our pubs. We’re proud of what’s been achieved so far, but know there’s so much more we can do, and are doing.
On a daily basis, our parent company Mitchell’s & Butlers are making small changes and wider directives aimed at reducing our environmental impact. The goals are:
o Net Zero Greenhouse Gas emissions by 2040 (scope 1,2 and 3)
o Achieving zero waste to landfill by 2030
o Reducing food waste by 50% by 2030
o We work with Fareshare to redistribute surplus food to communities who need it
o Our pub is powered with 100% renewable electricity
o 96% of our operational waste is diverted from landfill
o Sizzling Pub & Grill are founding members of the Zero Carbon Forum and committed to reducing our emissions and developing a roadmap to net zero
