Reynolds takes its responsibility to the environment very seriously. Our Environmental Management System is certified against British Standard BS8555 and we hold the Environmental Management System standard ISO 14001.
Reynolds was one of the founding members of the Hospitality and Food Service Agreement on waste reduction, working alongside many of its customers with the common aim of minimising waste food, packaging and carbon emissions.
The sector wide UK voluntary agreement was launched by WRAP, on behalf of UK, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland governments. The agreement aims to cut food and associated packaging waste by 5% (a CO2e reduction of 234,000 tonnes), the equivalent of approximately 100 million meals. It also aims to increase the overall rate of food and packaging waste that is being recycled, sent to anaerobic digestion or composted to 70% (a CO2e reduction of 336,000 tonnes).
Reynolds’ Technical Director, Ian Booth, regularly speaks with authority about Reynolds’ focus on waste including at the recent European waste conference, ‘No Opportunities Wasted’. Ian also lends his expertise to talk with industry students.
Reynolds has undertaken an assessment of its carbon footprint to the Carbon Trust standard which has been externally verified by Trucost. Our efforts to reduce the environmental impact of our work include:
