Sus­tain­abil­ity Promise

We have so for­tu­nate to be so busy since we first opened as a fam­ily restau­rant and always wel­comed chil­dren who we have always been seen as future guests

But as we see the end of pan­demic a even greater threat has arrived as we see the effects of cli­mate change which will effect future lives for those children.

Although it now appear too late to stop it, the chal­lenge is now to quickly embrace changes to ensure the next gen­er­a­tion that will have a planet this is some way habitable.

We look for­ward to the chal­lenge as well as help­ing others

Planet

Lib­erty Grill has made it a key pur­pose to con­tin­u­ously strive towards envi­ron­men­tal impact reduction.

  • Lib¬≠erty strives towards a zero (food) waste goal with use of stock pot cut¬≠tings as well as mak¬≠ing all dishes in small batches to avoid such waste.
  • We use 98% com¬≠postable pack¬≠ag¬≠ing for all take¬≠away /‚Äčdeliv¬≠ery orders.
  • Over the last 4 years have invested in a Lin¬≠cat Vortech Fry¬≠ers and a Syn¬≠ergy Grill which has reduced our energy usage by half. We are look¬≠ing to invest in induc¬≠tion tech¬≠nol¬≠ogy to see can achieve fur¬≠ther reductions
  • We are cur¬≠rently inves¬≠ti¬≠gated get¬≠ting involved in a plan to off¬≠set our car¬≠bon con¬≠sump¬≠tion and look for¬≠ward to updat¬≠ing you when we can put this in place
  • We com¬≠post but this is lim¬≠ited by the waste com¬≠pa¬≠nies not get¬≠ting on board so we can increase the fre¬≠quency of pick ups. We intend to reduce our land¬≠fill this year min¬≠i¬≠mum on our return to reopening
  • We aim to increase our veg¬≠e¬≠tar¬≠ian and vegan offer¬≠ing as we begin the turn away from meat.
  • Over the last cou¬≠ple of year we have begun to omit seafood items like salmon, tuna, farmed fish (Sea Bass & Sea Bream) as well as scal¬≠lops as the dam¬≠age to the envi¬≠ron¬≠ment is so great that turn¬≠ing a blind eye was no longer accept¬≠able. We are cur¬≠rently research¬≠ing fur¬≠ther area of marine con¬≠cern but accept their are local fish¬≠er¬≠men who must be kept in the loop as they will be needed to farm the sea sus¬≠tain¬≠ably in the future
  • The major¬≠ity of our wines are in the whole organic and vegan, the wine indus¬≠try use of Her¬≠bi¬≠cides (Roundup) which is totally out of pro¬≠por¬≠tion to the acres of land in use
  • Mar¬≠i¬≠anne Delaney the co-‚Äčowner of Lib¬≠erty Grill sits on Cork Food Pol¬≠icy coun¬≠cil which seeks to influ¬≠ence local food pol¬≠icy to fol¬≠low best prac¬≠tices in devel¬≠op¬≠ing a healthy, sus¬≠tain¬≠able and resilient food sys¬≠tem
