Caterer Adopts Woodland to Offsets Printing

Company News, Catering, EMEA, Service Provider News

Blue Apple Contract Catering has "adopted" a quarter of an acre of woodland as part of a 'Green Apple' pledge to offset carbon emissions and resources used printing documents.

2018 Sustainability and CSR Report was released earlier in the year, and outlines


Under a commitment to Sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) published last year, the UK-based company is committed to progressively reducing carbon dioxide emissions, energy usage and waste across its estate.


Commenting on its decision to adopt the woodland in Harpsden and Peveril, Buckinghamshire, Blue Apple sales and marketing director, Sarah Prentice, said:

"Offsetting our document printing in 2018 is just one of a wide range of initiatives we are working towards in 2019. Sustainability and CSR are areas that deserve our constant attention, and both are woven into the fabric of our day to day operations.


"This particular area of woodland is very close to our Wokingham head office and we are looking forward to visiting with a selection of treats from our development kitchens."
