Sustainability is one of the most important issues facing not just the hospitality industry, but the world. With its heavy impact on the environment and consumers’ desire for climate solutions, there’s never been a greater sense of urgency for action. However, the practical aspects of achieving sustainability in hospitality can be complex, hence the very real need for this new aspect of the show.
The Sustainable Restaurant Association have partnered with WRAP - key associations and resource efficiency experts - to offer a series of practical masterclasses and workshops filled with quick and easy suggestions, aimed at inspiring and informing operators, so they can take the essential practical steps to minimise their impact on the planet and maximise their sustainability.
Raymond Blanc OBE, President of the Sustainable Restaurant Association, said: "2020 presents hospitality with a unique chance to really grasp the opportunities offered by a shift towards a more sustainable model. Embrace positive change and customers will reward you. Stand still and you risk the health the planet, your business and potentially your customers. Sustainable Hospitality 2020 is a wonderful place for those involved in foodservice to come and be inspired to join the movement to make our great industry environmentally restorative and socially progressive, guaranteeing a better food future for all.”

• How to tackle food waste
