Making Sustainable Changes - UK
We are committed to reducing our single-use plastic footprint. We have replaced plastic straws and sandwich bags across our UK catering functions with more sustainable options. We have updated our procurement process to ensure that we prioritise working with suppliers who share our vision. And in collaboration with our waste management supplier, Reconomy, we have started our education programme to encourage all those who interact with OCS to think twice about their own plastic use.
We work closely with our customers to introduce sustainable solutions that reduce their impact on the environment.
We partnered with Auckland Airport, the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI) and Air New Zealand to reduce aircraft cabin waste. By developing a new way of reusing processed waste, we were able to recycle more than half of all waste (57% of 114 tonnes). And in the UK, we achieved zero to landfill in just two months after taking on waste management for the NEC Group.
