Covid-19 has been the biggest international talking point over the past year and a half, but a topic that has seen as nearly as much airtime has been climate change.
Despite the negative impact of the pandemic, there have been significant environmental benefits because of Covid-19, due to the overall reduction in commercial and human activity.
Instead of cancelling out this positive change by returning to our former ways, going forwards, it’s likely that more emphasis will be placed on businesses and the public to reduce their energy intake.
A sector which sees one of the most considerable amount of energy usage is the hospitality industry, as commercial kitchens are some of the highest energy users in the corporate sector, so, there is an even bigger expectation for hospitality kitchens to drastically cut down on their energy usage.
As Marshall Catering Equipment are renowned as experts in kitchen and hospitality design solutions, we recognise the importance of introducing energy-efficient equipment into the commercial kitchen setting.
Often, there is a trade-off between initial investment costs and the savings provided by energy-efficient equipment and higher quality appliances, with lower servicing costs throughout the product life. Despite having a higher upfront cost, using ‘green’ appliances can help save on monthly utility bills.
In 2021, foodservice businesses need to play their part in lowering their energy consumption and this could be achieved through renewing equipment.
Older equipment generally becomes more inefficient over time. Regardless of how well equipment is maintained, it will still be less effective than the day it was installed. Equipment manufacturers are continuously striving to make their products more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly, resulting in reduced utility and maintenance costs. So, switching to more energy-efficient equipment will pay off in the long run.
As Marshall has over 40 years of experience in choosing the right appliances for kitchens, speak to us directly and we can work with you to design a new, sustainable kitchen that reduces your utility costs.
