    WRAP Cymru

    When taking into account food procurement, labour, utilities and waste management costs it is estimated that food waste represents a cost to the Healthcare Sector of £230 million each year, or £1,900 per tonne.  Prevention, therefore, offers a real opportunity for hospitals to make financial and environmental savings, and improve the catering service they provide to patients.

    Challenging the way the catering service is delivered and utilising the combined experiences of catering, nursing and dietitian teams (“the Power of 3”) can identify waste prevention opportunities. This can include behavioural changes such as avoiding the preparation of ‘just in case meals’ or more fundamental changes such as revising a menu or the food ordering system.

    WRAP’s bespoke resources to help you reduce costs are available via our Health Sector webpages or for further information please contact hugh.jones@wrap.org.uk .

    WRAP Cymru is part of WRAP, the circular economy experts.  Our work helps businesses, councils and householders prevent waste, recycle more and save money.  Visit the WRAP website to learn more.

    This work includes UK-wide food waste prevention programmes such as the Courtauld Commitment 2025 (C2025) for the grocery sector, and consumer behaviour change campaigns such as Love Food Hate Waste.

    Centrica

    Centrica Consumer is designed to support the needs of residential consumers and Centrica Business is designed to support the needs of the business customer.

    Our customer-facing businesses are supported by the common operating functions of Customer Operations and Field Operations. These functions are where we touch the customer and are fundamental to our success.

    Our Central Power Generation business is included within the Centrica Business division given its role in the management and optimisation of central power generation and its interface with wholesale markets.

    Our remaining two asset businesses of Exploration & Production (now under the Spirit Energy joint venture) and Centrica Storage, are operated separately and continue to play an important role in our portfolio.

    To ensure our model remains efficient and scalable, all businesses are supported by a number of centre-led Group Functions that are responsible for setting boundaries and standards which allow us to effectively manage risk and ensure a strong system of internal control. In everything we do, we are committed to the highest standards of safety and compliance. We aim to be a good corporate citizen and an employer of choice.

    The Vegan Society

    The Vegan Society was founded in November 1944 and we’ve made tremendous progress since.

    The society was first registered as a charity in August 1964 but its assets were later transferred to a new charity when it also became limited company in December 1979.  The definition of veganism and the charitable objects of the society were amended and refined over the years.  By winter 1988 this definition was in use – although the phrasing has changed slightly over the years – and remains so today.

    JRP Solutions

    At JRP, we take our responsibilities to our local communities and the wider world very seriously.

    The very nature of our business is to help minimise the environmental impact of other businesses particularly from an energy and carbon perspective but our obligation goes beyond our core business activities.  We are all ‘eco warriors’ at heart!

    We all pro-actively minimise our own impacts on the environment by:

    + Travel – Whenever possible we minimise travel by using conference calling, we car share or use public transport and all our colleagues are sponsored by the business to complete an advanced driving course through the Institute of Advanced Motoring to ensure safe and energy efficient driving practices.

    + Waste – we minimise paper use by using electronic files, digital marketing, actively discouraging printing of emails and documents.  All proposals are submitted electronically and presented via PowerPoint presentation.

    PETA

    The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Foundation is a UK-based charity dedicated to establishing and protecting the rights of all animals.

    Like humans, animals are capable of suffering and have interests in leading their own lives; therefore, they are not ours to use – for food, clothing, experimentation, entertainment or any other reason. PETA and our affiliates around the world educate policymakers and the public about cruelty to animals and promote an understanding of the right of all animals to be treated with respect.

    PETA works through public education, research, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement and protest campaigns. PETA believes in non-violence and does not advocate or support actions in which anyone, human or non-human, is harmed. PETA is a charitable organisation that works to educate the public about the horrors of cruelty to animals through peaceful means.

    Depending on context, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals Foundation may be referred to as the “PETA Foundation”, “PETA UK”, or “PETA.” References to any campaign activities that occurred prior to October 2009 refer to activities undertaken by PETA Europe.
