Sustainability and Investment

Admiral Taverns, the UK’s leading community pub company, has unveiled phase two of its sustainability roadmap, announcing a further £800,000 investment into reducing carbon emissions across its estate.

This latest announcement builds on the Group’s £1m investment in September 2022 to install energy saving equipment in 750 of its pub’s cellars and bars, saving c. 1,500 tonnes of carbon per year.

The roadmap, which ensures reducing environmental impact underpins Admiral’s long-term
sustainability plan, is based around five core pillars; Energy and Water, Buildings, Packaging and Waste, Product Sourcing and People, Social and Community.

As part of the Group’s progress against its five-year sustainability strategy, Admiral Taverns will continue its partnership with Technik2 to install energy saving equipment in cellars and behind bars across an additional 200 pubs. Cellar managers can save approximately 30% of energy needed to cool cellars, and fridge managers can save 33% of the energy used to power botle fridges. This has been introduced at no charge to licensees and can deliver savings of up to £5,000 per pub – a first for a leased and tenanted business.

As part of its wider sustainability strategy, all capital investments now include a mandatory
sustainability element such as loft insulation, replacing energy inefficient lighting and installing pipe lagging to improve EPC Ratings and sustainability of pubs.

Admiral Taverns has also taken steps towards reducing carbon emissions across its own operations.
Most recently, it has converted its field employees’ vehicle fleet to electric, with approximately 60% of
company cars now being fully electric. In addition, Proper Pubs, the community wet-led operator division of Admiral Taverns has achieved ‘zero to landfill’ for waste over the past year.

Admiral Taverns, the UK’s leading community pub company, invested more than £27 million into elevating its community pubs throughout 2023. The group, which owns approximately 1,500 pubs across England, Scotland and Wales, has invested the funds into over 300 pubs across both its leased and tenanted estate and its community wet-led division, Proper Pubs.

A robust investment programme is a core part of Admiral’s strategy to ensure that every pub can thrive and make a positive difference within their communities across the UK. Investments range from major transformational interior and external refurbishments through to important updates to licensee accommodation and long-term structural improvements.

Many of the Group’s pubs sit at the heartland of bustling but often underinvested regions of the UK and are vital social hubs, offering a range of activities and events for the local community. Regardless of whether they be major investments or smaller but critical spends, the fundamental purpose of the Group’s active Capex programme is to ensure these pubs can continually improve the environment and service they can offer locals.
