Ember focuses on sustainability

As the UK commits to net zero carbon emissions by 2050, here at Ember, we’ve taken the time to evaluate our carbon footprint and create a clear strategy for how we limit our impact on planet earth.

We’re proud of the work we’ve done so far, but there's a long road ahead of us and, we’re aware of how much more there still is to do.

Every day, as well as providing you with a comfortable local where there’s real ale and traditional pub food, we’re making small changes that we hope will have a long-lasting impact on our planet. Our parent company Mitchell's & Butlers has developed an extensive strategy with a determination to keep making improvements and sustainable choices. Our key goals are:


o Net Zero Greenhouse Gas emissions by 2040 (scope 1,2 and 3)

o Achieving zero waste to landfill by 2030

o Reducing food waste by 50% by 2030

o We work with Fareshare to redistribute surplus food to communities who need it

o All of our Ember Inns are powered with 100% renewable electricityo

o 96% of our operational waste is diverted from landfill

o We are founding members of the Zero Carbon Forum and are committed to reducing our emissions and developing a roadmap to net zero
