BBPA comments on 25-year plan for environment

BBPA Chief Executive Brigid Simmonds:


“I welcome today’s announcements, with their focus on the long-term commitment to protecting the environment.


“As signatories of the Courtauld Commitment, we are committed to working closely with the Government and other partners in reducing emissions and tackling waste.


“The industry already has a good record in sharply reducing both energy and water use, and a strong commitment to recycling, through our packaging waste compliance scheme, SUSTAIN. The emphasis on reducing food waste is important, and we will continue to work on the guidance and advice that we already provide for pubs.


“We will certainly play our full part in continuing to support and promote sustainable business models in the sector.”
