Hospitality & Leisure

Preventing food waste and boosting profits for hospitality and leisure

Meeting the energy and waste
challenges of the hospitality sector

As the UK's fourth largest industry, the hospitality and leisure sector has huge annual energy costs of more than £1.36 billion, contributing more than 8 million tonnes of CO2. 

Hotels, pubs, restaurants and leisure centres demand significant amounts of energy and generate large volumes of waste.

Food waste remains number one priority

Food waste is one of the biggest challenges for the sector, costing the leisure industry alone some £241 million a year - the equivalent of £4,000 per tonne of waste. Preventing avoidable food waste remains a top priority for companies under pressure to improve margins while reducing their environmental footprint.

Continuously adding value

Our hospitality and leisure sector customers are able to achieve rates of 98% diversion from landfill via our national network and the development of bespoke onsite waste improvement programmes to boost the bottom line.

Our energy plants directly impact the environment that our business operates in. To preserve its health, it is vital to embrace those technologies that help to reduce our carbon footprint and the new CHPs do just that. In collaboration with Veolia, we are already planning the replacement of further CHP engines over the next two years.
