In 2022/2023 we set out our key strategic sustainability pillars and revised our key performance indicators to align to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and to reflect key topics from our materiality assessment. The insights gained through this assessment allowed us to target specific environmental, social and governance issues across our business. Through these findings, we then shaped our sustainability objectives accordingly.
As part of our methodology, we conduct an annual environmental, quality, food safety and health and wellbeing review encompassing all aspects of sustainability. Our sustainability objectives have been interwoven into CCSL’s overarching business plans for 2022/2023.
The progress of the targets set for each of these key areas is reviewed quarterly and measured by management. Targets are set in conjunction with feedback from all locations. All targets set are realistic and achievable. Where targets are not being achieved an analysis is conducted and adjustment made accordingly. Target results are communicated via e-newsletter to all sites. Targets are based on a combination of CCSL and client company targets and are heavily influenced by the client policies and the associated site protocols i.e., Waste Management Programmes where some client site protocols separate waste streams more effectively and measure departmental wastes and consequently can set specific targets related to the catering services contract.
Coffee. It’s the drink we reach for when we need to wake up on Monday mornings or to help us through that Wednesday afternoon slump. With 7 out of 10 adults drinking at least one cup per day it is no surprise how much our coffee knowledge in Ireland has developed over recent years.
Our sustainability goals have been set to lay the foundations for long-term climate resilience, to be equipped to meet best practice reporting standards, to align operationally to client expectations and to demonstrate industry leadership on sustainability.
These targets reflect an increased focus on sustainability across our clients and sites.
Our sustainability strategy has three pillars:
1. Climate Action
2. Good Health & Wellbeing
3. Responsible Consumption & Production
Our 2023 Sustainability Strategy outlines our comprehensive approach to minimizing our environmental impact, promoting social responsibility, and ensuring the longevity of our business practices. With detailed action plans and measurable goals, our strategy represents our ongoing dedication to sustainable development and a greener future for all.
