A new report has been published by Elior detailing its many corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme and initiatives.
Staff are encouraged to adopt the company’s ‘produce good, do good’ culture and the report proves Elior’s commitment to social good through the adoption of Elior Group’s ‘Positive Foodprint Plan’.
“The importance of external collaborations in CSR with suppliers, clients and partners is essential,” said Charlotte Wright, CSR manager at Elior UK. “But CSR is something else as well. It is a journey in which colleagues can take a personal stake. In just about every programme and initiative, our progress and outcomes are improved by the enthusiasm of our people.”
The report is published after Elior recently won the FSM Corporate Social Responsibility Award for championing a diverse mix of initiatives. They include a commitment to reducing its environmental footprint, working towards zero food waste. Already, 88 tonnes of carbon has been saved by switching to Vegware packaging across the business.
Elior has developed different menu concepts and programmes to encourage nutritious diets and healthy lifestyles. The menu concept Elements was launched to emphasise ‘star’ ingredients, focusing on freshness and raw natural foods.
The company has Food for Life Served Here certification and follows the Marine Conservation Society’s Good Fish Guide.
Elior also has various workplace schemes to encourage staff innovation. They include a ‘Principles of Leadership’ training course, allergen training, and The Bold Idea scheme to commend ideas and innovation from employees.
