PIES, PLANET, PEOPLE
We’re proud that Pieminister is a certified B Corporation. This means we’re part of a global community of businesses that meet high standards of social and environmental impact.
BUT THIS IS JUST THE START. WE REMAIN FULLY FOCUSED ON ACHIEVING THE AMBITIOUS GOALS WE SET OURSELVES IN 2020, TO HIT BY 2025. THEY COVER EVERYTHING FROM CARBON AND WASTE REDUCTION TO EMPLOYEE BENEFITS AND CHARITABLE GIVING, TO SUPPLY CHAIN PRACTICES, ANIMAL WELFARE AND BIODIVERSITY (AND LOADS MORE IN BETWEEN).
Goal 1: We will never compromise on our high animal welfare standards – and raise the bar even further, starting by moving to 100% slow growing breeds of chicken.
…and we will grow our plant-based product range while decreasing the range space currently given to our British, predominantly grass-fed beef pies.
Goal 2: We will champion the use of deforestation-free ingredients across the industry, leading with our identity preserved palm oil and deforestation free soy.
Goal 3: We will reduce our Carbon emissions by at least 50% and become 100% carbon neutral.
Goal 4: We will make sure that 100% of our packaging is reusable, widely recyclable, or easy to home compost, with a continuous reduction of single-use plastic packaging.
Goal 5: We will send zero waste to landfill across all PM restaurants, offices & our pie kitchens.
Goal 6: We will reduce our total waste (including packaging) by 30% and maximise the amount that is recycled or composted…and we will reduce food waste across the business by 50%.
Goal 7: We will expand our support of UK and global charities, through more Pie & Cash donations (AKA: Little Acts of Pie-ness).
Goal 8: We will cultivate a happy, healthy, inclusive and diverse internal pie team.
Goal 9: We will commit to giving a proportion of our time in work to external volunteering & social action.
