How will this be achieved?
Nando’s already has a program in place to cut emissions in the business and its supply chain – e.g. we have switched all restaurants in England, Scotland and Wales to renewable electricity and gas. We’re now building on our strategy by investing in high quality, independently assured carbon credit purchases that cover the remainder of Nando’s carbon footprint by November this year. This means that as people eat at Nando’s we will fund projects that offset emissions equivalent to those associated with their meal.
Through these purchases we will be supporting projects in southern Africa (Malawi, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and South Africa), establishing partnerships for multiple years. The first projects supported will include the Kariba Forest Project in Zimbabwe and the Wonderbag clean cooking project in South Africa.
