Pizza Hut Restaurants, Burger King UK and Darwin & Wallace will take part in a special panel on sustainability at MCA’s Restaurant Conference next month, alongside Zero Carbon Forum.

For hospitality businesses, going greener can mean anything from reducing waste and carbon emissions, to kitting out restaurants in reclaimed materials – though the most impactful changes can often be the costliest.

In this panel, which coincides with the United Nations’ climate change conference COP26, we discuss the progress being made by the sector in the race to become carbon zero, and how it can achieve more through collaboration.

Joining the panel will be Steve Packer, director of supply chain and IT, Pizza Hut Restaurants; Nicola Pierce, head of strategy and responsible business, Burger King UK; Mel Marriott, founder and managing director, Darwin & Wallace; and Mark Chapman, founder and CEO, Zero Carbon Forum.

Taking place at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square on Wednesday 3 November, MCA’s annual sell-out Restaurant Conference returns for its first live event since 2019, and will see sector leaders coming together network, share vision and strategy, and digest the current dynamics of the sector through a day of keynote speeches, insight presentation, panel discussions and Q&As.

Also speaking at the event will be Paula Mackenzie, KFC UK & Ireland’s managing director; John Eckbert, CEO Five Guys, Minister Paul Scully, Jeremy King, CEO, Corbin & King; and Lord Mark Price, former Waitrose MD and founder of employee engagement platform WorkL.
