As we create, cook and serve our dishes, we know we have a responsibility to help fight climate change and protect the planet we all call home.
Wherever feasible, Pied à Terre use processes and systems that are non-polluting, conserve non-renewable energy and natural resources, are economically efficient, are safe for workers, communities and consumers, and do not compromise the needs of future generations.
We have a water-saving management programme in place, and this can be as simple as training the staff to turn the taps off more quickly, and we monitor our water usage weekly.
Our new water filtration and reusable bottling system means that we no longer stock bottled water, and we estimate we will save the disposal of over 16,000 bottles per year.
Clean energy solutions are also part of our sustainability strategy. This year, we are making a significant change to how we work by transforming the kitchen into an induction only workspace that will ensure energy is used only when needed. Unlike gas hobs, induction hobs use all of the generated heat. And because induction hobs cook faster, that also saves significant energy over time.
USE. AND REUSE.
We ask our suppliers to use recyclable or reusable packaging, and we recycle everything we possibly can – cardboard, paper, bottles, batteries, electrical items, and of course, food.
