Energy and carbon are two of our biggest environmental impacts. Heightened environmental awareness, costs, regulation and advances in technology are also driving Marston’s to develop new programmes to improve efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.
The use of energy throughout our business has been re-evaluated each year. For Marston’s improvements in energy utilisation through green technology, building design and behavioural change are intended to drive significant savings in emissions.

We are a signatory to the Hospitality Zero Carbon Forum, established to decarbonise the sector at pace. Together with 18 other hospitality organisations and backed by UK Hospitality and BBPA, we have created a team of leading sustainability experts to combine resources to systemise adoption of emission reduction initiatives and publish an industry-wide net zero roadmap by September 2021.
The forum is pledging to act now to achieve net zero carbon targets faster, more efficiently and cost effectively than acting alone. We believe this approach could act as a template for future industry sector collaborations in the UK and globally.
