Sustainability

Our mission is to be the greenest beach café and shop operator and we strive to minimise the harmful effects and maximise the beneficial influences which our activities have on the environment. We have won a number of county, national and international awards including the Queen's Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development in 2010 and 2005 with the judges describing us as 'a rare example of a sustainable café chain'.

At Venus our philosophy is best summed up by our strapline ‘Loving the Beach’, this business ethos ensures that our customer's needs are balanced carefully with environmental and social considerations.

As part of our ongoing environmental commitment we have implemented a number of measures over the years including:

  • Re-developing sites using recyclable materials and sympathetic landscaping
  • Installing energy efficient solutions including solar panels
  • Using chlorine, toxic and phosphate-free cleaning products
  • Undertaking regular litter picking in our immediate environment
  • Procuring local food and drink from the areas around our cafés and using local businesses for other goods and services
  • Setting up a central distribution system which combines with a staff transport programme & saves over 2,600 food miles every week
  • Trialing and introducing packaging solutions which are kinder to the environment
