Following the success of Vegan Tuesdays, Henrik is already thinking bigger. “I have very big ambitions. I want to change the world. I want people to know that the way we’re producing and consuming food right now is bad for the environment. And that we can all do something to change that, by making conscious choices,” he says.
Henrik’s work in this area isn’t just confined to ISS. He is, for example, a board member of REFOOD Label, a certification and advisory organisation that helps companies reduce food waste and increase recycling. For Henrik, this work is a passion – and it is supported by ISS.
“At ISS, you have the freedom to pursue your ambitions. If you have an idea, you can put it out there. If it’s good, they will support it. I love that I have the support of a big company – that I’m empowered to make decisions and make a real difference.”
Since starting as a chef in 1997, Henrik Seierø has worked at some of the most prestigious restaurants in Denmark, run canteens serving up to 1,500 people a day and operated his own catering company focused on healthy and nutritious food.
Among his many achievements, Henrik won ISS’s Health, Safety & Environment Award 2018 and received an ISS Apple Award in 2015 for commitment to diversity. He is also an elected Board Member of the REFOOD brand association.
