Restaurants Green Paper

Below are a couple of extracts from the Restaurant Green Paper, that look at awareness within the Restaurant sector of both Governement loans designed to facilitate greener actions, and the Energy Technology List, a resource that gives operators the knowledge needed to make an informed decision.

graph1AWARENESS OF GOVERNMENT LOANS TO HELP YOU BUY NEW ENERGY EFFICIENT ITEMS SUCH AS FRIDGES?
75% of Restaurants questioned stated that they were unaware of Government loans available. Although slightly below the average across all sectors, this figure is still far too high, and demonstrates just how much work there is still to do in educating end users about the help available in purchasing energy efficient kit.


graph2AWARENESS OF THE ENERGY TECHNOLOGY LIST
78% of Restaurants claimed they were completely unaware of the Energy Technology List, and how it can help them choose greener equipment for their establishment. What's more, none of the Restaurant sample questioned had ever taken advantage of it.

SRA-logoAs the Green Paper 2010 shows, the restaurant industry’s awareness of the importance of sustainability, as a business benefit as well as an environmental essential, is growing.

The hospitality industry has been slow to catch on to the many benefits attached to being more sustainable. But restaurants are now realising that taking small steps across the full range of sustainability can save them money, match diners’ demands and be good for the planet. Energy efficient kitchen equipment is one such solution. Better waste management and simple water saving measures are other straightforward ways restaurants can mark themselves out from the competition and see real cost benefits.
