- Reduction of water consumption for cleaning areas
- Regular review of leak checking procedure
- Dishwashers run with full loads only
- Staff to avoid leaving water tap running, while washing food
- Selection of garden plants with moderate water needs
- Our goal is to avoid landfill at all costs; we know it's bad for the environment, that they are filling up fast and that they are becoming increasingly expensive.
- We've began back of house recycling and are currently investigating the composting of food waste generated in our kitchens, items like egg shells, plate scrapings and coffee grinds, but it's not as easy or cheap as it sounds. We will continue to explore other options to divert waste from landfill through Anaerobic Digestion plants and working with our partners to utilise their access to Materials Recovery Facilities (MRF) and Energy Recovery Facilities (ERF).

- Separating cardboard and vegetable oil to recycling companies
- Recycling of used cooking oil
- Cardboard is recycled
- Since we launched our national recycling programme in 2009, and with all Moto sites participating we managed to recycle just over 1000 tonnes of cardboard in the first year. Plastic and Food Waste are next on the list and despite it being more difficult that you might think we plan to have this one cracked in 2010.
- Moto is aware that more and more of the Earth's resources are being used up. We recognise that we can help in another small way by doing something positive about renewable energy. One of these options is to ensure that our Waste Cooking Oil is sent for the production of Bio Diesel. Bio Diesel burns clean, which results in a significant reduction of the types of pollutants that contribute to smog and global warming and emits up to 85% fewer cancer-causing agents.
