Stem and Glory has announced its pledge to become carbon negative by the end of the year.
Following the restaurant’s participation in the London Mayor’s “Better Futures Programme” the group has brought forward its pledge to the end of this year.
The group already has a number of other initiatives within its restaurants to reduce its emissions, such as the use of contemporary furniture made from recycled post-consumer waste, and repurposed products.
However, from October, the restaurants will be taking further steps and will be removing single use coffee cups completely in favour of reusable cups, with reusable lunch boxes to follow.
Louise Palmer-Masterton, founder, Stem and Glory, said: “One of the simplest and most significant actions restaurants (or any business or family) can take to lower their carbon emissions is to move their electricity supply to a 100% renewable tariff, and stop cooking on gas.
“At Stem and Glory, we intend to completely decarbonise eating out, so our customers know their dining choices are sustainable ones, and we urge restaurants everywhere to join us on this journey – helping diners play their part in tackling the most critical challenge we all face.”
