Part of our mission to make Cambridge a Sustainable Food City includes engaging with businesses and supporting them in their endeavours to become more environmentally friendly and ethical. This could involve anything from waste management to the sourcing of produce, to employment policies. We aim to promote and showcase good practice; Cambridge has some very good examples of sustainable food businesses, and we would like to raise their profile with the general public.

Below you will find the Pledge and Award Scheme for Businesses, which was successfully piloted during January 2016, and revised after consultation in early 2017. You will also find resources and useful information for applying to the pledge. Once you’ve read the information about the scheme click ‘Apply Now’ to kickstart your application.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding the pledge; drop us an email at
