Kitchen experts ready to debate green profits

Gram has unveiled the line-up of speakers set to take part in its second webinar covering sustainability in commercial kitchens later this month.

Andrew Fishwick, owner of The Truscott Arms in Maida Vale, Mark Linehan, managing director of the Sustainable Restaurant Association, and Myles McCarthy, the Carbon Trust’s director of implementation, will form the panel for the live session, which will be chaired by Gram MD Glenn Roberts.

The quartet will examine what it takes to achieve a sustainable bottom line and examine whether operational efficiencies are the recipe for business success when the webinar takes place at 3pm on Thursday 25 June. The panel will also respond to viewers’ questions live.

The panel will discuss how to access the variety of schemes and incentives available, from capital allowances and feed in tariffs to the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme and tax reliefs for purchasing energy efficient equipment.

The subject matter is particularly pertinent given that research from Gram last year revealed that 63% of operators said they had little or no awareness that the government offers tax breaks to help businesses become greener.
