The Hen & Chickens Theatre Bar focuses on sustainability

The UK has committed to net zero carbon emissions by 2050, and we want to help here at The Hen & Chickens Theatre Bar. The plan? Taking a step back, assessing our carbon footprint, and choosing a strategy that will limit the impact on our planet. We’re proud of everything done so far, but there’s still work to be done!

Our parent company Mitchell’s & Butlers are making small, daily changes and ongoing directives that we hope will have a long-lasting impact. We’re setting our sights on:


o By 2040, achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions (Scopes 1, 2 and 3)

o Zero waste to landfill by 2030

o Reducing food waste by 50% with 2030 as the target

o We work with FareShare and redistribute surplus food to communities in need

o The electricity powering your favourite pub is 100% renewable

o A huge 96% of our operational waste is diverted from landfill

o Those of us at The Hen & Chickens Theatre Bar are founding members of the Zero Carbon Forum, and our goal is to reduce our emissions and create a Roadmap to Net Zero
