INNOCAT partner Environment Park (EnviPark) is an innovation accelerator for businesses looking to use eco-efficient solutions to expand their markets.
Lead buyer ARPA Piemonte employs around 300 workers, approximately 100 of whom eat meals in the staff canteen. As well as food, it is responsible for paying all of the energy and water costs associated with running the canteen. The organisation is interested in using eco-innovative processes to reduce these costs.
Two priority areas were identified: waste reduction and energy saving through the procurement of more energy efficient catering equipment. These provide both financial benefits and impact in terms of improved sustainability.
The results of this procurement process were published in the last INNOCAT newsletter
