The Green Paper 2014 Launch

Following the success of the previous three Papers, there was much anticipation ahead of The 2014 Green Paper throughout the industry.

As the most robust report to date with the largest sample size, it was only right that there was a big stage for the launch of The Green Paper 2014 and Hotelympia provided the perfect platform.

Presented by CESA Chair, Keith Warren and Richard Webber from research specialists, Cambridge Direction, the report’s most poignant findings were raised and discussed between an expert panel: Dominic Burbridge, Associate Director at The Carbon Trust; Julie Barker, TUCO Chair; Chef John Campbell; Andy Jones, HCA National Chair; Andrew Etherington, FCSI Vice-Chair.

Throughout the presentation, key industry figures, such as Executive Head Chef at Royal Garden, Steve Munkley, restaurateur and chef, Simon Rogan, Head Chef of Shepherd Neame pub, Alistair Lycett and Sustainable Restaurant Association Managing Director, Mark Linehan.

Following the delivery of The Green Paper 2014, the panel debated how operators and caterers can move forward in the face of barriers raised in the report and also what opportunities there are available which will help to build a more sustainable future.
