Sustainability stars

Having picked up an Energy Management Team of the Year award last year, our amazing energy team is up for more top industry awards!

Today the teammates have been shortlisted for the Food Waste Innovation and Recycling Excellence awards at the National Recycling Awards, along with our waste management partner UKWSL.

The awards recognise and celebrate best practice and innovation in recycling and waste management, and it’s easy to see why they’ve been shortlisted!

Under their steer, Marston’s has gone from 60% recycling and 40% waste to landfill, to around 77% of all waste being recycled.  The remaining waste is sent for recovery with less than 0.5% going to landfill or incineration, making us the first of the top 5 pub chains to reach ‘Zero Waste to Landfill’.

And that’s not all – they’ve also been shortlisted for the ‘Circular Economy’ award at the Global Good awards, after introducing products made from 100% recycled plastics to some of our pubs!

They’ll find out if they’re winners in June. Good luck to the team!
