Blue Apple Catering 2018/19 Sustainability & CSR Report

Company News, Catering, EMEA
Independent UK caterer Blue Apple has delivered its 2018/19 Sustainability and CSR Report, which highlights a wide range of initiatives across the business designed to reduce its environmental footprint and increase its positive social impact. Now in its 20th anniversary year, Blue Apple remains as committed to sustainable and responsible practises as ever before, driving down food waste, investing in employee wellbeing and ensuring its supply chain is as ethical as possible.

 

Within the past 12 months alone, the company has achieved a remarkable amount. For example, since April this year they have reduced food waste by 4% across the estate and have introduced their Green Apple Ambassador initiative, a team of staff from all levels of the business who are passionate about the environment and committed to achieving Blue Apple’s sustainability targets. The company has also recently been awarded an SRA Food Made Good accreditation for the second year running at one of their flagship sites in Wiltshire, and appointed an SRA Champion within the business to provide ongoing support for other sites currently going through the process.


In terms of staff wellbeing, this is an area of focus that has been given special attention. A business is nothing without its staff and to that end Blue Apple has introduced an Employee Assistance Programme to provide a range of wellbeing services. This gives all staff access to unbiased and impartial advice on both work and non-work related topics – including physical and mental health issues, or financial difficulties, for example.

 

Sarah Prentice, Sales & Marketing Director at Blue Apple, commented: “Sustainability and CSR are fundamental to the way we operate as a business and the initiatives we have launched, and have promised to launch going forward, are testament to that. We understand that the process is both ongoing and collaborative, therefore we work hard to ensure that our staff, clients and suppliers all buy into it in equal measures. We are particularly proud of our Green Apple Ambassador (GAA) Programme - a team of Blue Apple staff from all levels of the business who are passionate about the environment and committed to making a real difference to the impact our industry has. They are dedicated to achieving our 2018 Sustainability and CSR targets, by making recommendations and implementing improvements for our clients and throughout the Blue Apple business.”
