I prefer eating local, organic and seasonal food. It’s good for my health and for the planet. The offer of sustainable food near our office is poor. As we have an internal restaurant for staff I thought it would be a good idea to have sustainable agriculture products on the menu. That’s why I decided to launch the idea of "The Sustainable Fork".
By choosing the organic food option, you contribute to protecting biodiversity as no chemical pesticides and fertilisers are used, at the same time promoting local farming, and protecting the planet respecting the limits of natural resources, while eating healthy and nutritious products.
A sustainable food offer is available every day. Overall, the project was a success. We’ve had a lot of positive feedback from staff and our restaurant supplier has recently expressed its satisfaction with the organic food sales.
The benefits are for both our staff and for the company. The link between the company and the employees is stronger because Euroclear shows that it cares about its people's health. Finally, this initiative has increased employee satisfaction: it’s easier, more choices are available at the canteen, healthy and nutritious food is now an option.
