Trans Fat Business Pledge

Date: 21 Sep 2012

 

The pledge that businesses are asked to make is simply:

 

“We have already removed, or will remove, artificial trans fats from our products.”

 

In summary, it requires that:

 

  • Fats and oils are free from partially hydrogenated vegetables oil and contain no more that 2% total trans fats.
  • Food service providers procure products and adapt their practices to remove artificial trans fats.

Employee Feedback

"As a company BT puts the Health and Wellbeing of its employees extremely high on its list of priorities and at the Consumer Sales Call Centre in Truro we’re very pleased that our work in this area has been recognised by a gold award.  Initiatives that we’ve spearheaded as a result of our involvement in the scheme have included workshops to encourage healthy eating and stopping smoking as well as promoting the use of our on-site gym.   Working towards and achieving the Healthy Workplace Gold Award has been an extremely rewarding process.  The assessment process has provided us with a framework to recognise the actions and activities that are already in place as well as to identify areas in which additional activity could take place"- Tracey Camps, BT Consumer Sales Truro.

“The health promotion bug has really caught on! Employees are constantly coming up with new ideas and it’s done a great deal to help with staff morale.”
