The COP26 Frontrunners’ dinner saw business leaders from around the world come together as part of the BCC’s global Climate Challenge campaign - “Chambers unite for a greener future”.
It was an evening full of engaging discussion about our planet and the sustainability methods trialled and tested by leading businesses including:
- Invigorating discussions around the company value chain and how suppliers can be encouraged to embrace the sustainability challenge.
- Future planning for the actions that should take place beyond COP26
The dinner was a truly front-running event with carefully sourced materials, demonstrating the sustainability choices that are all around us. Every aspect of the evening had a story behind it. Even the menu included a carbon footprint calculator per serving, allowing guests to understand the impact of their choices. The canapés were presented by The Vegetarian Butcher, ‘bringing new meat to the (conference) table!’ and facing the elephant in the room when it comes to the carbon footprint of our food. Drinks came in low carbon Heineken bottles, produced using biofuel and made from 95% recycled glass to reduce their carbon emissions during production.
Have you ever sat down for a meal and wondered about the carbon footprint? With this menu you can!
Ahead of the Paris agreement, Heineken is one of the first brewers to commit to reducing carbon emissions within production to net zero by 2030.
With the world becoming more aware of meat production's environmental impact, The Vegetarian Butcher believes plant-based alternatives are a vital part of the process.
