Cafe2U ramp-up their commitment to sustainability

Leeds-based franchise continues their push for a cleaner, greener business and planet.

The UK’s largest mobile coffee franchise, Cafe2U, remain committed to reducing the company’s carbon footprint. From their headquarters in Leeds, the company have continually focussed on ‘doing their bit for the planet.’

In recent years Cafe2U has launched several initiatives with the aim of being kind to the environment. Last year they introduced zero-emission electric vans to their fleet, with the goal of replacing all of their petrol-powered vehicles by the year 2025.

The company have around 100 vehicles in the UK and are already making impressive progress. Their initial assessment, that their fleet of vans will save approximately 12,650g of CO2 per annum, has now been upgraded to 12,672g CO²/km.

Among Cafe2U’s other sustainable practices are their reusable and/or compostable coffee cups. They also encourage their customers to take advantage of the company’s biodegradable paper straws, as well as their paper cup recycling scheme.

Their commitment to reducing the company’s carbon footprint is proving popular with both customers and franchisees alike who are all conscious about the need to be environmentally-friendly.

And Cafe2U’s sustainable business model is certainly attracting new business partners. Despite the pandemic and other business-related issues, which are affecting the UK economy, the company still managed to increase its number of franchisees during 2021 by a whopping 20%.

Cafe2U’s chief executive Martyn Ward said: “While we’re delighted to have developed a reputation as a sustainable franchise, our ambition is to become the UK’s first carbon neutral coffee company.

“With that in mind, we’ll continue to improve the business until we make it as environmentally friendly as it possibly can be. We’re certainly keen to do our bit for the planet. Reducing our carbon footprint is absolutely vital to us and our customers, and we have always looked at ways of becoming ever-more sustainable.”

Cafe2U has become synonymous with providing a much-needed service at non-traditional locations. They will visit your workplace, special events, business parks, industrial estates and even your own home. Their specially-equipped vans currently serve over 11 million cups of coffee per annum to people at their workplace.
