Reduce. Recycle. Re-use.

Our Green Code

Caring for the world we live in is of paramount importance at PizzaExpress, which is why we’ve introduced our very own ‘Green Code’:


  • We limit the amount of single use items used for take out purchasing – of course these are all made with recyclable materials and are biodegradeable
  • We aim to serve the right-size portions – in order to limit unnecessary food waste
  • We avoid over-use of air conditioning in a bid to reduce energy – and we have installed energy-efficient E.P. exhaust systems for air conditioning
  • All appliances and lights are switched off at night, or when not in use
  • Water reduction measures are in place for dishwashers and sanitation systems
  • Low-energy lighting systems are introduced in all new restaurants
  • Filtered water is available to all customers
  • ipad customer ordering systems and cloud-based stock control reduces need for paper
  • We actively support the Green Monday campaign in Hong Kong and encourage our diners to think smart one day a week and avoid meat, in order to help protect the environment.


  • For our restaurants in Hong Kong, where possible, our glass, paper and metal waste is sent to recycling, rather than to landfill
  • We are working towards a food waste collection scheme with some of our shopping malls where left over food is turned into compost, or fish food


  • Fresh dough left over at the end of the evening is baked into flatbreads and distributed to those in need by Feeding Hong Kong.
