Planet Peach Sustainability Summit

Planet Peach Sustainability Summit

Case Study


More than 100 leaders from the hospitality sector were brought together for a half day networking event to discuss sustainable actions and impacts upon the sector. The Planet Peach Sustainability Summit covered challenges around the supply chain, investment, politics, technological advances, and communication, as well as examining how individual businesses and the sector can collectively build on the progress and commitment already made.


The event was a co-produced by Peach 20/20 and Fleet Street and sponsored by 30 Euston Square’s parent company, Searcys. This gave 30 Euston Square a significant opportunity to showcase its far reaching ESG policies and practices. Noted speakers including Kate Nicholls from UK Hospitality, Thomas Heier from Wagamama, Assad Malicfrom Greene King and Katya Simmons from Nestle Professional UK&I headlined the presentations.


All food was entirely plant-based with dishes scoring ‘A’ or ‘B’ (using Nutritics Foodprint) and with carbon scores between 0.02g and 0.32g CO2e per serving. All dishes were served using non-disposable tableware and menu items.

NEMI Teas and Extract Coffee were on offer and plant-based milk was served as a default. Both hot beverage suppliers have strong social enterprise roots: NEMI Teas providing employment to refugees and preparing them for the workplace, while Extract Coffee is sustainably sourced directly from farmers and champions local communities, LGBTQ allyship and gender equity.

Naturally sourced water was served in glass bottles with excess and wonky fruits from the kitchens adding zest and flavour.

The event also enabled practical experience from nominated hospitality charity, London’s Hotel School, which teaches hospitality skills to homeless and vulnerable people and empowers them to find sustainable employment.

At the networking drinks, Searcys own signature English Sparkling wine from Surrey was served along with alcohol free English sparkling wine, Wild Idol. Beers included local small batch brewers Camden Brewery and B Corp Small Beer, which feature half the alcohol of traditional brews.

“This inaugural summit was an important event for the entire hospitality industry and for us as a venue as it gave us a chance to highlight the impact we are making to our people and the planet”.
