Tableware hire in volume from a sustainable supplier

Read more about tableware hire for large event caterers and why sustainability should be at the heart
tableware hire

Sustainable operations should be at the heart of every company (and, of course, tableware hire companies in this case), and rightly so. In fact, we all need to be aware of how our daily lives impact the environment, both personally and professionally.

It goes without saying, therefore, that eventCCG is committed to having a positive effect on our environment, and driving change within our sector.  We operate an ongoing, sustainable and long-term approach, continually reviewing & modifying the way we work, in line with best practice.

Tableware hire for major event catering

With this in mind, find below some of our initiatives that we are currently driving forward with.

We work with responsible suppliers that share our sustainability ethos, aiming to source premium quality, durable tableware, which helps to extend the lifecycle of the products.

We prioritise working with locally based suppliers (regional / UK-wide & Europe) to minimise the carbon footprint generated by our product procurement process.

We use state-of-the-art washing Meiko & Hobart conveyor washing machines, with a policy of replacing older machines when necessary, and only purchasing the latest energy-efficient models. Our industrial wash machines are all operated using 100% renewable energy and have the lowest water consumption compared to any of our competitors.

We use LED lighting in all of our nationwide hubs, as part of our overall energy saving initiative.

We have invested in new vehicles which comply with the “Ultra Low Emissions” regulations. We also own purpose-built box trailers which are aerodynamically shaped. These hold more equipment than standard trailers, resulting in fewer journeys and increased fuel efficiency. Moving forward, the fleet will gradually be upgraded to all-electric.

We regularly maintain all our vehicles to the highest standard in order to keep emissions and fuel consumption to a minimum.

Managing internal processes to achieve the desired outcome

We manage our logistics with the environment in mind, aiming to reduce our pollution by spending the least amount of time on the road as possible. All operational staff are trained to ensure that order accuracy, loading and route planning are maintained to eliminate “second trips” and, therefore, minimise vehicle mileages. We also offer regular refresher sessions to their drivers and crew to make sure they are up-to-date on best practices when it comes to economical driving and packing vans.

We are committed to cutting down on all manner of waste in workspaces, whether it is paper, metal, plastic or cardboard. Everything in our offices and warehouses is separated and recycled to ensure that the impact on our local landfills is kept to a minimum.

We encourage all office staff to car share to reduce fuel emissions and, therefore, to further minimise our carbon footprint.

We ensure that all our staff have undergone the Eco Learning Hub ‘Sustainability in Hospitality’ course – a CPD-accredited course which certifies those that reach a high level of environmental awareness, allowing each individual and team member to create their own action plan to reduce carbon emissions.

As we said, all our environmental initiatives are constantly being reviewed, modified, improved and expanded as time goes on, but hopefully this gives you a flavour of what we are currently doing.
