Which? ranked most and least sustainable UK restaurant chains

We hope you have seen the recent Which? Report, that outlined how the sector was getting on regarding the path to net zero. The report, and our response to it, had widespread coverage in national media including titles such as The Times as well as within trade press such as Morning Advertiser.

The report has garnered lots of interest, across the media and from consumers, indicating that brands lacking a credible, data-backed story about their impact are at risk of scrutiny and criticism. 

Meanwhile, brands that have solid data and strong messaging about their impact, progress and plans will reap the benefits, many of which will flow straight to the bottom line.

Which? ranked brands that chose not to or were unable to respond to their survey questions alongside those that performed badly, highlighting further that if you are not taking action or not sharing your story, your brand is exposed to this criticism, with bodies such as Which? assuming the worst.  Green-hushing is no longer an option.
