Environment: Takington Bates does its part!

July 22nd 2019

“We must join forces to do all we can to cut the use of plastic from the catering environment.

Nature is so pressure. Let’s do our best to protect it

Climate change and depletion of natural resources are a reality and a threat to the world in which we live. Talkington Bates is proud to be an ISO 14001:2015 certified company. We are committed to protecting the environment for future generations and operate our business in a way that respects the environment.

REMOVING SINGLE USE PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES

In January 2018, we banned single use plastic water bottles from all of our client sites and were all very humbled to receive a letter of congratulations from Sir David Attenborough for our environmental achievements.

REDUCING VEHICLE EMISSIONS

We work hard to reduce our environmental impact and another area we have had great success is with our fleet vehicles. In 2018, we reduced our fleet CO? emissions by 49%!

CONVERTING WASTE OIL INTO BIO-DIESEL

All waste oil is collected from our sites and transferred in bulk to a recycling facility in Liverpool. It is heated, cleaned and filtered, ready to be converted into a fuel that gives more than 86% greenhouse carbon saving compared to regular fossil diesel.

RECYCLING COFFEE GROUNDS

Used coffee grounds are great for the garden. The benefit of using coffee grounds as a fertiliser is that it adds organic material to the soil, which improves drainage, water retention and aeration in the soil. The used coffee grounds will also help microorganisms beneficial to plant growth thrive as well as attract earthworms.
