As the UK commits to net zero carbon emissions by 2050, we’ve decided to take a step back and assess our carbon footprint at The Devonshire Arms – and within that, deciding on an effective strategy that will limit our impact on Earth.
We’ve done a lot of work so far and are incredibly proud of this, but there’s still a long way to go, and plenty of things to do.
Each day we’re doing our part, making little changes in the hopes our planet will reap the benefits. Through sustainable decision-making and improvements, we’re focusing on:
o Net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040 (Scopes 1, 2 and 3)
o By 2030, achieving zero waste to landfill
o An overwhelming 50% reduction of food waste by 2030
o A close relationship with FareShare, where we redistribute surplus food to those who need it within the communities
o Our pubs are powered with 100% renewable electricity
o 96% of our operational waste is diverted from landfill
o We’re founding members of the Zero Carbon Forum and are dedicated to reducing our emissions and developing a Roadmap to Net Zero
