Hotel group Exclusive Collection partners with Klimato to reduce carbon footprint in the events industry

Hotel group Exclusive Collection has joined forces with carbon labelling company Klimato to highlight the carbon footprint of each dish within its corporate and private event food menus in a bid to be more sustainable.

This latest collaboration means that all conference, meeting and wedding menus will display the carbon footprint associated with each meal, allowing organisers to make more informed decisions rather than basing their choices purely on taste and price alone.


Exclusive Collection already works to minimise food waste, and strives to grow its own produce where possible, aiming to promote a zero waste policy across its venues. Moreover, this isn't the first time that Exclusive Collection has partnered up with an eco-forward company, the group also works with OLIO, which helps take leftover food from events and redistribute it to local communities and projects where possible. At one of the venues, South Lodge in Horsham, if something is unable to be redistributed, then it is sent to the onsite rocket composter, which processes any commercial and green waste to be reused as a natural fertiliser. 

Gardening and a wheelbarrow

The luxury brand is known for owning country houses in various locations across the country, and channels a progressive outlook on sustainability. This ethos has led it to be the UKs first certified B Corp hotel company. David Connell, Director of Operations for Exclusive Collection, explained that events are a significant sector for the group, and food is an important part of events, so it therefore made sense to focus on this area.

Connell continued ‘By working with Klimato and encouraging and educating clients to make conscious choices when they are with us, we’re bringing a huge new dynamic to the way we cater for events that can only have a bigger, positive impact for all.'

Exclusive Collection is committed to educating its clients, team, and supply partners on the benefits of conscientious commercial decisions, by making the process clear and easier to understand.
