MoMo Café, Courtyard by Marriott Bangkok becomes The PLEDGE™ on Food Waste All-Star Certified, LEADING responsible gastronomy in Thailand.

Courtyard by Marriott Bangkok is committed to actions designed to conserve and protect the environment and will continue to implement those actions whenever possible and economically feasible, with ALL-STAR LEVEL achievement from The PLEDGE™ on Food Waste project as a guarantee.

After reaching the GOLD level (92.5%) last year, we worked hard to overcome ourselves and we finally made it through the ALL-STAR level during their second year with The PLEDGE™ on Food Waste. Moreover, with our business sustainability intention, we also eliminate single-use toiletry plastics by installing larger, pump-topped bath amenities, replacing plastic water bottles with glass bottled water in all meeting rooms and guest rooms, using paper straws, and operating a food delivery business through bio-degradable and paper boxes.

Designed on first-hand knowledge from sustainability experts and academics, The PLEDGE™ on Food Waste is a practical answer to the widely underestimated issue of Food Waste, in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals 2 (End Hunger) 12 (Sustainable Consumption and Production) and 13 (Climate Change). The third-party audited standard is articulated around 7 key pillars that include Process Documentation, Employees Commitment, Food Waste Monitoring System, Food Handling before Preparation, Food Preparation and Offering, Customer Engagement, and Post Consumer.

The PLEDGE™ was adopted by Courtyard by Marriott Bangkok, initiating change in our operations at the start of September 2021, and obtaining tangible results:

  • Food Waste per cover was reduced by 95.6%
  • Food Rescued: 16.07 tons
  • CO2 equivalent: 40.19 tons offset
  • Savings: USD 64,311 in 12 months

“At MoMo Café, we believe that The PLEDGE™ is a good way to consolidate our initial commitment and create a platform to engage not only our staff and suppliers but our distinctive dinners who are expecting the best from us. Our goal is to become a caste study for the entire industry”.
