Marks and Spencer’s White Rose Leeds location has recently installed two heat recovery systems in their food hall to improve their energy efficiency and reduce their carbon footprint. These systems work by capturing the waste heat generated from cooking and food preparation equipment and then using it to preheat incoming fresh air, thereby reducing the energy required to heat the building. By installing these systems, M&S is not only reducing their energy costs but also taking a step towards sustainable operations, contributing to their overall corporate social responsibility efforts. The installation of heat recovery systems in the food hall is also likely to have a positive impact on customer experience as it will improve air quality and reduce the temperature in the hall.
In addition to the food hall, Marks and Spencer’s White Rose Leeds location has also installed a heat recovery system in the café and back-of-house areas. This system is designed to capture the waste heat generated from cooking and food preparation equipment and use it to preheat incoming fresh air, similar to the systems installed in the food hall. The installation of the heat recovery system in the café and back-of-house areas is expected to result in improved energy efficiency and reduced carbon emissions. By implementing these sustainability initiatives, M&S is demonstrating its commitment to environmental stewardship and corporate social responsibility, while also improving the customer experience through better air quality and temperature control.
