Costa coffee owner cuts its carbon


Ever think about how much carbon goes into making your coffee? It’s a question the owner of the Costa coffee chain has thought about – and it says it has saved more than 1500 tonnes of CO2 in 2011.

Whitbread, the UK’s largest hotel and restaurant group, cut the same amount of carbon as taking 250 medium-sized cars off the road across its hotels, restaurants and coffee shops.

The savings are an 11% cut in carbon emissions relative to sales revenue, according to the latest Environment Report from the group which also owns Premier Inn.
