Naturally fast food chain LEON has switched to a 100% renewable energy deal.

The contract with Opus Energy covers all LEON-owned stores where the energy contract is not managed by a third party.

Its restaurants will be powered by a mix of wind turbines, solar panels, hydropower and anaerobic digestion.

LEON gives itself a rating of 41% for energy efficiency and 54% for overall environmental impact.

Kirsty Saddler, Director of Marketing at LEON said: “At LEON we want our food to taste good, do you good and make you feel good. But more than that, we want to bring it to you in a way that is kind to the planet.

“We are a company driven by positivity and purpose. We constantly challenge ourselves to see if we can do better and moved to a 100% renewable energy contract, even though it wasn’t the cheapest offer on the table. We are determined to invest in the future, rather than just the bottom line.”
