Popular restaurant chain Nando’s has today announced it has become carbon-neutral across its Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions.
It has set aims of becoming net zero by 2030 and had its climate targets verified by the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
To achieve carbon-neutrality across its restaurants and supply chain it has offset all its emissions. It claims this is equivalent to the emissions output of 71,418 cars driven for a year or the annual emissions of 20,257 British citizens.
The restaurant has also moved to 100% renewable electricity in the UK and reduced the carbon footprint of each individual meal by 40% since 2015.
On its social media channels, the company stated: “We are carbon-neutral across our Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, the first step on the way to our ultimate goal of hitting net zero by 2030.
“You’ll have heard a lot lately about COP26, where world leaders come together in Glasgow to discuss a united, global response to the climate crisis.
“Right now, we’ve never felt more sure of our commitments and fired up for change.”
