loco green steps

At the Loco Group our mission is to bring the flavour of Mexican culture to Singapore and we are committed to making our community a better place.

As our business grows and prospers, we realise the importance of doing our part for the environment.

You will never hear us say we are the most “sustainable”. Sustainability to us does not mean a race with a defined finish-line. It is an ongoing mission to make the footprints we leave behind a little smaller each month, each quarter and each year.

That is why we made a pledge and took up the Little Green Steps program with Green Is The New Black.

our milestones

What we’ve achieved so far includes

  • Offsetting 100% of the carbon emissions of our direct operations through carbon credits from a Congo forestry protection project “The North Pikounda REDD+ Project” with Carbon Conservation. Click here for The Loco Group Carbon Assessment Report. Read more on the sustainability project.
  • Ensuring all our printing paper are from FSC-certified renewable sources.
  • Eliminating single-use plastic straws and only offering a biodegradable straw on request.
  • Ensuring all our packaging and single use disposables are biodegradable and come from a sustainable source.
  • Eliminated imported bottled mineral water at Super Loco Robertson Quay, replacing with premium filtered tap water which reduces the emissions from importing and disposing glass bottles.

To help offset our carbon emissions, a discretionary 50c per person is applied to all bills. We provide unlimited premium filtered still or sparkling water to all our guests to reduce the footprint of importing bottled mineral waters.

Sustainability is not an event, it is an ongoing mission in which we challenge ourselves to minimize our environmental impact. We still have a lot more work to do which we will keep you updated here.

The Loco Group can’t change the world on its own. By being a people business we aim to humbly inspire as many guests, suppliers, collaborators, and other businesses to take up the pledge to make their own footprints smaller. That is truly powerful and game-changing for the community and the world we live in.

We are always on the look-out for collaborations to spread the word about sustainability or find new ways to be more sustainable ourselves. If you’re interested to collaborate with us, we’d love to hear from you. Please go to our contact page to get in touch. Salud!
