Sense — The sustainable company restaurant

Sense covers several existing hospitality initiatives such as community restaurants, company restaurants and some hotel, seminar, and event activities. In collaboration with switchrs, Sense developed a step-by-step plan for the sustainable company restaurant of the future.

Sense — Turning sustainability
ambitions into actions

The challenge

Sense is an innovative social economy player that brings meaningful work to people with few opportunities so that they can be part of society and a social network again. Sense serves a rich catering experience with a smile and craftsmanship.

In order to further grow their positive impact, Sense teamed up with switchrs to explore what the sustainable company restaurant of the future looks like.

01

How can we link the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to our daily operations in order to create a positive impact for people and the planet?

02

How can the circular economy inspire new business opportunities for catering and company restaurants?

03

What concepts can be developed to unite changing customer expectations with a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle?
