Central London event venue RCP London Events has signed three new collaborations with environmentally conscious partners: Toast, Ellis Wines and Edmunds. This exciting venture aims to seamlessly integrate sustainability into every aspect of event operations and set a new standard for responsible event hosting in 2023 and beyond.
Planet-saving beer with Toast: brewing a sustainable solution
To tackle the pressing issue of food waste and climate change, RCP London Events has joined forces with Toast, an innovative beer supplier. Toast takes a circular economy approach by brewing beer from surplus fresh bread that would otherwise go to waste.
This initiative significantly reduces waste and environmental impact, using around a quarter less malted barley compared to conventional beers. In addition, Toast reuses the spent grain as animal feed and composts the used hops to enrich the soil.
As a Certified B Corporation, Toast reinvests all its profits into charities committed to fixing the broken food system, ensuring high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. Toast also adheres to Equity for Good principles, ensuring that investors reinvest net capital gains into environmentally focused companies. With the promise to be carbon neutral by 2030, Toast’s brewing process actively mitigates and reduces carbon emissions.
Sustainable wine with Ellis Wines: Cultivating long-lasting relationships
RCP London Events has also partnered with Ellis Wines, a carbon neutral wine supplier, to promote sustainability across its operations. Ellis Wines prioritizes partnering with quality-oriented winemakers, often family-owned wineries, who share their commitment to sustainable practices. Their portfolio includes organic, biodynamic, low intervention, carbon neutral and certified sustainable wines.
In addition to their wine offering, Ellis Wines is actively involved in initiatives that reduce environmental impact and support local communities. From educational support to charity work, they exemplify a holistic approach to sustainability.
Edmunds Cocktails: Planting trees for a greener future
RCP London Events’ eco-conscious cocktail supplier Edmunds promises to plant a tree for every 1 liter box or bottle sold. With a track record of 100,000 trees planted in regions around the world including Egypt, Mexico, Honduras, Brazil, India and beyond, Edmunds actively contributes to crucial climate projects. Their commitment extends to conserving rainforests and promoting wind and solar energy initiatives to combat climate change.
As a local, independent supplier, Edmunds prioritizes high-quality, locally sourced ingredients and takes an innovative approach, from fully recyclable packaging to promoting a carbon-positive workforce.
A collaboration for positive change
RCP London Events Managing Director James Fisher said: “Our partnership with these sustainable suppliers goes beyond our product offering at RCP London Events. It positions our venue to make a significant impact in tackling food waste, reducing our environmental footprint and providing vital support to communities in need.
“We are steadfast in our commitment to minimize our impact on the environment and continually look for innovative solutions. Sustainability is an integral part of our daily operations and encompasses every facet of our business, from catering to waste management and energy savings.”
