Making Sustainable Changes
Our business touches millions of people every week. That means that we are in a position to make positive changes.
In 2018, we launched our statement of intent to limit the impact of our operations on the environment. Making Sustainable Changes focuses on reducing single-use plastic and our carbon footprint.
Our immediate focus is the UK, where we employ over 20,000 people, and where the plastics agenda is most established.
Among the changes we have made so far, 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 we prioritise working with suppliers who share our vision. And, in collaboration with Reconomy, our waste management supplier, we have started an education programme to encourage all those who interact with OCS to think twice about their own plastic use.
We are committed to implementing sustainable changes that have a long-term positive effect.
