Grill'd: sustainability initiative
Healthy burgers, healthy planet.
Caring about sustainability and the environment is in the Grill’d DNA.
We’re thinking bigger and doing better.
One burger at a time.
Smaller Footprint, Fresher Burgers
Our produce is farmed locally. That’s our priority. It keeps our food distribution footprint down low and gets the burger to your plate faster. Fresher, too.
We’re now plastic-straw free. Saving 1.6 million black plastic straws from going to landfill each year.
Max Taste, Less Waste
97% of our produce gets eaten. Feel good licking your plate.
Our burger standards are high. So are our animal welfare standards. Our beef, lamb, and eggs are free-range, and our chicken and pork are RSPCA approved.
Gippsland, Southern Tablelands, and Riverina. We like knowing where our meat comes from. Call it our healthy obsession.
From our paddock to your plate, our beef and lamb is grass-fed and free-range, so you can enjoy a natural and flavoursome taste. Give it your lick of approval.
Recycled Cooking Oil
Our oil has it good. It gets a second run when we turn it into biodiesel. In the past 12 months we’ve recycled 265,000 litres.
Sustainably Planted Forests
The paper and cardboard for our takeaway packaging, knife sleeves and Mini Me kids packs is PEFC and FSC Certified. It comes from sustainably planted forests. For every tree cut down, another one gets planted in its place.
Thanks to water-based coatings, our packaging is 100% recyclable. No more petroleum-based chemicals. We always aim to put it in the right bin.
Chip and Dip
You’re working on your appetite for chips. We’re working on making our chip and dip cups more sustainable. Watch this space.
Dimming Lights System
We use a dimming system, which saves 57% of energy needed to light our restaurants. That’ll set the mood.
Energy meters in restaurants are helping us see where our energy goes. We like knowing, so we can plan solutions to use less energy
Employees Love The Planet
Our 4,336 employees took a survey and nominated the environment as the cause closest to their hearts. We’re listening and taking action; giving our people what they want.
1 Million Hours of Knowledge
It feels good to know things. In the past year, we’ve delivered more than 1 million hours of learning with traineeship programs, leadership courses, and master classes.
We’re learning how to be better; better people, better for the environment, better within our communities, and better to each other.
$4,000,000 To Local Matters
Our Local Matters program has raised almost $4,000,000. Thanks to 20,000 local community groups and organisations. Thanks to our restaurants. Thanks to you.
