The George of Harpenden focuses on sustainability

As the UK commits to net zero carbon emissions by 2050, we’ve evaluated the carbon footprint across our pubs and created a clear strategy for how we limit our impact on planet earth.

We’re really proud of the work we’ve done so far, but there's still a long road ahead of us and we’re making small changes every day. Our parent company, Mitchell's & Butlers are determined to keep making improvements and sustainable choices that are focused on:


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 Our pub is powered with 100% renewable electricity

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
