Earth Day: Invest in our Planet | Just Eat for Business

Next week (22nd April) marks Earth Day 2022. The theme is "Invest in our Planet", and according to EARTHDAY.ORG, the organisers of Earth Day, this year's theme is focused on accelerating solutions to combat the threat of climate change, and to "activate everyone – governments, citizens, and businesses – to do their part."

Earth Day is happens annually and demonstrates support for global environmental protection. At Just Eat for Business, keeping people happy is only half of our mission - we want to keep the planet happy and healthy too. Each day we work hard to make Just Eat for Business more sustainable and eco-friendly for all.

EARTHDAY.ORG say that "unless businesses act now, climate change will ever more deeply damage economies, increase scarcity, drain profits and job prospects, and impact us all... Studies show companies who develop strong Environment Social Governance (ESG) standards have better profitability, stronger financials, happier employees, and more resilient stock performance."

In the past, we've reflected on what Just Eat for Business is doing to improve our sustainability now and into the future. Over the past couple of years, we’ve made some big changes to create a more sustainable, fairer service for people and for the planet. From zero emissions deliveries to sustainable packaging and food waste reduction, we have focused on a range of practices in order to make food delivery more environmentally friendly.

In this blog post, we're showcasing our sustainable packaging partnership with CLUBZERØ through the vendors who are participating in the scheme. Check them out and learn about CLUBZERØ below:  

 

About CLUBZERØ

We partnered with CLUBZERØ to deliver office lunches with returnable and reusable packaging. This service is  available via several vendors on the Just Eat for Business platform (you can see who they are below!). When customers order through the Just Eat for Business platform with a participating restaurant, they can choose to opt in for reusable packaging.

After they’ve enjoyed their meal, they can either arrange for the packaging to be collected through the CLUBZERØ app or be able to deposit the items at designated CLUBZERØ locations. The partnership works towards the commitment to reduce plastic pollution across the food delivery sector, and helps to build a more sustainable future for food delivery too.
