For years Nando's have only used 100% LED lighting in their restaurants, made sure to re-use timber from construction and invested in specialised equipment to reduce our energy consumption.
They’ve developed a Sustainable Fit-Out guide that sets out their sustainability principles when they refurbish or build a new restaurant. It lists certain must-haves, from having recycled content in tiles and using natural fibre insulation, to reusing existing features, and ensuring all our taps, toilets and flushes are low flow, reducing the water we use.
Since 2015, they've already reduced the carbon footprint of our meals by 40% and we’re working hard to do more, but right now, we have some that we simply can’t avoid. Until they’re sorted, we’re going to completely balance our footprint through carbon offsetting projects.
