The Brook Inn is committed to minimising the impact of our activities on the environment and we encourage our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders to do the same.
Our most recent carbon footprint (for the electricity and gas we use at the pub) is for 2015/16 and has been calculated to be 43.9 tonnes of CO2e. We’re hoping to reduce this by 5% by the end of 2017.
Through the implementation of this policy and the associated action plan, we hope to continually reduce our environmental impact.
To achieve this we aim to:
→ Source local food and ingredients and use local suppliers wherever possible.
→ Reduce the amount of energy we consume (by ensuring that lights and electrical equipment are switched off when not in use and heating is adjusted with energy consumption in mind) through good staff training.
→ Re-use and recycle wherever we can – cardboard, bottles, plastics, cooking oil, toner cartridges, neon light tubes.
→ Comply with all relevant regulatory requirements and environmental legislation.
→ Measure and monitor our environmental performance.
→ Encourage customers – especially local ones – to walk to the pub or take public transport.
→ Continue to update and improve the fabric of the building.
