Pizza Hut Delivery releases its first carbon neutral menu items with the help of ClimatePartner

April 14, 2022

Pizza Hut Delivery have teamed up with ClimatePartner to measure, estimate and offset the carbon emissions of their flatbreads sold in the UK, making each of their flatbreads carbon neutral.

Pizza Hut Delivery is taking responsibility for residual emissions by supporting offset projects which avoid, reduce and remove carbon from the atmosphere. Their primary offset project is with Mootral, an AgriTech company that develops innovative solutions for companies and governments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as the usage of drugs like antibiotics in the agricultural sector.

The Mootral project in Lancashire, United Kingdom, reduces the emissions associated with cattle agriculture. A single cattle produces 500 litres of methane per day – a greenhouse gas 84 times more potent than CO2 over a 20-year timescale. By supplementing the cows‘ diet with a natural garlic and cirtus fruit supplement, verified methane reductions of 21% and 38% have been observed across two respective breeds since May 2019.

This project was selected for its direct link to meat and dairy, which was an important and symbolic connection for Pizza Hut Delivery. Looking towards the future, Pizza Hut Delivery is interested in supporting research and development in the industry to make sustainable farming more accessible and is also actively adding plant-based options to their offerings.
