Partnerships with Suppliers
Partnerships with suppliers
KFC Australia partners with its suppliers to drive more sustainable processes and to minimise its impact on the environment.
Sustainability working group
This year, we implemented an industry sustainability working group across our supply chain to understand crossovers, opportunities and best practice initiatives.
We are partnering with some of our large suppliers to undertake a Life Cycle Assessment project with an independent environmental consultant. In this Farm to Fork study, we will assess the environmental and social hotspots in our business and identify opportunities for improvement and partnership.
Industrial Ecology Workshop
With our partner EDGE Environment, we will establish and run a Sydney Industrial Ecology Network. Made possible through a grant from the Environment Protection Authority, the network will bring businesses together to foster reuse of commercial and industrial waste. This program is part of the Waste Less, Recycle More initiative.
We will host this event to reduce waste and promote responsible resource management across our supply chain.
The workshop aims to identify and facilitate exchanges of resources by connecting people, developing business cases and assisting with regulatory requirements.
KFC Australia diverts 60,000 uniforms from landfill
On World Environment Day, we announced that by end-2014 we would use our supply chain network to transfer approximately 60,000 old uniforms to Pacific NonWovens, a fibre technology company that would convert them to 25,000 m2 of Superfelt carpet underlay, to be sold commercially.
Our existing food delivery suppliers, Cut Fresh Salads and Unifresh, are collecting the old uniforms during routine deliveries and sending the 7,000 kilograms worth of materials to Pacific NonWovens from their distribution centres.
