The one-month campaign runs from April 21 to May 19.
This campaign is in line with the direction of PLANET 21, AccorHotels’ global sustainable development programme launched in 2011. The second phase (2016-2020) of the PLANET 21 programme covers four action areas involving employees, customers, partners and local communities, with the priority on food & beverage. By the year 2020, the group aims to reduce food waste in all of its restaurants by 30%.
Sofitel Macau At Ponte 16 fully supports the campaign.

The buffet is very popular among the region but at the same time it also generates relatively more food wastage compared with the other restaurants in the hotel. To disseminate the message about food saving, table stands and flyers with message of “Clear Your Plate” campaign are placed on each table, as well as the buffet line to remind the guests to “only get what they want” and cherish food, so as to help protecting the environment. The restaurant staffs are also happy to introduce “Clear Your Plate” campaign to the guests and explain the expected results that the hotel would like to achieve with the campaign. For external communications, the hotel published news and updates about “Clear Your Plate” campaign on all social media platforms in a weekly basis so as to spread the words about cherishing food and let our guests know how the group care and support about protecting the environment, also wish to invite more guests to participate the campaign through promoting on social media platforms.
