The environmental benefit
The Company Shop business model offers a recognised 'best practice' solution that solves residual stock issues and reduces landfill. We offer a sustainable, efficient and ethical alternative. Over 16 million tonnes of food is wasted annually. About 40% of this is sent to Britain's landfill sites. A large proportion of this is wholesome food within its sell-by-date.
Company Shop helps the supply chain to redistribute that surplus, uphold the food waste hierarchy and achieve a positive environmental impact. Each year, we estimate that the actions of our business save approximately 108 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions – the equivalent of that produced by a small British town.
We are accredited to the ISO 14001:2004 environmental standards. Our environmental policy statement sets out our commitment to protect the environment, comply with all legal obligations and set achievable objectives. Please click this link to view our Environmental Policy Statement
