Bidvest 3663 has been awarded The Planet Mark for Business certification in recognition for the company's continued improvement in environmental and social sustainability.
Steve Malkin, CEO at Planet First, explained: "Bidvest 3663 is the first foodservice provider to be awarded The Planet Mark, which is acknowledgement and further evidence of their proactive approach to creating positive social and environmental impacts. It is this commitment and leadership which puts them at the forefront of sustainability in the industry."
Shirley Duncalf, head of sustainability at Bidvest 3663, added: "The Planet Mark for Business is provided by sustainability consultancy Planet First in partnership with the well-respected Eden Project, the educational charity which promotes sustainable futures.
"As well as helping us to reduce our carbon footprint and championing sustainability, having the Planet Mark provides a platform for us to attract and retain clients by aligning with their sustainability objectives and gives us access to a growing network of like-minded businesses that we can collaborate with. We look forward to the seeing the results of this partnership over the coming three years."
Bidvest 3663 will now help its customers to attain the mark by providing materials, tools and advice on how to improve environmental performance, and has negotiated a discounted rate for its customers who wish to achieve it.
