Immense commercial pressures have not forced the pub sector to abandon green initiatives, according to a special report into the industry by energy-efficient refrigeration supplier http://www.caterersearch.com/Articles/2010/03/08/332523/Grams-second-Green-Paper-shows-industrys-increased-awareness-of-green.htm" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer">Gram UK](http://www.gram-commercial.com/).
The bespoke report is based on the survey of 600 operators across six industry sectors that was published in the [Gram Green Paper 2010](http://www.gogreenwithgram.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=38&Itemid=27).
It found that 48% of pub operators felt confident in passing on some of the costs of green initiatives to the consumer, compared with a 32% average across all sectors.
However, the pub sector proved more complacent about the green credentials of its suppliers, with only 47% seeing this as an important factor compared with a cross-industry average of 61%.
"The publication of this new paper on the pub sector is really good news. Pubs can easily guzzle a lot of energy and any research that helps raise awareness of how to save energy in the kitchen in an industry as diverse as ours has got to be a good thing," commented Lee Cash, co-founder of [Peach Pubs](http://www.peachpubs.com/).
