Sustainability & Environmental Policy (1)

Our Commitment

JPRestaurants is committed to leading the way in sustainability within the Island’s Hospitality industry.

We strive to minimise our environmental footprint and maximise our positive impact on the community while delivering high quality, delicious, and ethically-sourced food. We recognise the importance of operating in a manner that’s sustainable for our planet and equitable for all stakeholders involved – from farm to fork.

Sustainable Sourcing

Local and Seasonal Ingredients: We commit to prioritise purchasing from local farmers and producers, to reduce transportation emissions and to support our local economy. We will emphasize seasonal ingredients across our menus to ensure freshness and minimise environmental impact. We will source our wines and drinks from Western Europe to reduce food miles.

Certified Suppliers: We commit to work with suppliers who are certified in responsible and sustainable practices, including those focusing on organic, fair-trade, and ethically-sourced goods.

Sustainable Seafood: We will work to ensure all seafood is sourced from sustainable fisheries and aquaculture, adhering to guidelines that protect marine ecosystems.

Sustainable Meat and Dairy: We will ensure that all meat, poultry and dairy products are ethically sourced from farms that employ humane and environmentally beneficial practices.

Alternative Protein: We will work in menu development and customer education to reduce animal protein and increase use of healthy and more environmentally-friendly alternatives, such as beans and pulses.

Energy and Water Efficiency

Energy-Saving Appliances: We will utilise energy-efficient kitchen equipment and lighting to reduce energy consumption. We commit to regularly maintaining and servicing equipment to ensure its efficiency. We will work to ensure our energy usage is as near to net zero as possible.

Water Conservation: We will implement water-saving practices in our kitchen, toilets and bathrooms, including low-flow taps and water-efficient dishwashers. We will train our staff in water conservation techniques to further reduce water usage. We will encourage guests staying in hotel bedrooms to reuse their towels, and only replace towels that have guests have specifically requested be refreshed. We will commit to using environmentally-friendly detergent and laundry practices, and will also monitor water usage regularly to detect and repair leaks promptly, and to identify areas for further improvement.

Audit: We will regularly audit our energy consumption across our organisation to identify and address areas for improvement.

Renewable Energy: We commit to work with our local power provider to use renewable energy sources where feasible, such as solar panels or wind energy, to power our operations.

Waste Reduction and Management

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: We will implement practices to reduce food waste generation, promote the reuse of materials, and ensure proper recycling of unavoidable waste.

Packaging: We will use biodegradable, compostable, or recyclable packaging for all takeaway and catering services.

Pollution Prevention

Fat and Oil Disposal: We will properly dispose of fats, oils, and grease to prevent sewer and waterway contamination.

Cleaning Products: We will use environmentally-friendly cleaning products across our business to minimise chemical pollution.
