    Blueprint is Catering for the environment.

    Blueprint Catering places a very high priority on issues relating to the maintenance and care of the environment. We currently have in place an environmental management policy and have document procedures relating to environmental management. We have taken steps to ensure affiliation or certifictation for our products from a number of organisations, in particular, our sustainabilty partner Enviroselect.

    Enviroselect is a not-for-profit organisation founded by University of Melbourne students in 2006. Enviroselect encourages small businesses in the hospitality sector to implement environmentally friendly initiatives and recognises their efforts by awarding them the enviroselect mark, a mark that we Blueprint Catering proudly bears.

Sustainability in our office and at work:
