This reward serves to support and motivate our Franchisees whom have been on our green journey and have shown significant improvement on their “Green Ops Reports”[1]

The reward criteria specifically look at improvement in energy consumption, water conservation, waste management and eco procurement of non-centralised produce. The top-performing restaurants stand a chance to earn their Green Feather Rewards in recognition of their outstanding effort in building a sustainable business. Additional activities such as measuring and monitoring progress, an active green team and environmental community projects also contribute towards the adjudication.

We are very proud to announce the well-deserving recipients of the Green Feather Rewards 2017/18.

The winners and runners-up received additional financial support to go towards further supporting their sustainability journey. In addition to this, the winners received a plaque/certificate of recognition to display in their restaurant, in-store training, an eco-intervention, social media artwork, the Green Feather icon on the brand’s website and PR content for use on digital platforms and in the press.

Spur Corporation intends to support our Franchisees in their endeavours to become more sustainable businesses that focus on the triple bottom line (People, Planet and Profit). To achieve this, we aim to be a sustainable business with great brands which makes a positive and lasting difference in the lives of our employees, Franchisees, communities and the environment.
