Bennett Hay, the UK’s leading bespoke hospitality services for both catering and guests has achieved the Planet Mark certification. The company is striving to make sustainable decisions with every step. Its ambitions include zero food waste and eliminating packaging with a move to energy efficiency and water-saving initiatives.
Building on ISO standards and strengthening its environmental credentials, Bennett Hay will be working with Planet Mark to reduce its carbon emissions and share its journey with its community to inspire others. Understanding and measuring its carbon footprint is the first step in identifying ways to minimise its impact on the planet. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, it will be able to increase its positive impact significantly and hopes to encourage continual improvements within its community.
Through Planet Mark, the company will be protecting an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth directly supports the Asháninka community in Central Peru.
It will also be helping the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.
To recertify next year Bennett Hay must reduce emissions by 2.5%.
A 5% year-on-year reduction is the target reduction recommended by Planet Mark.
