CERTIFIED GREEN RESTAURANT ®

What does Certified Green Restaurant® mean? The purpose of the GRA standards is to provide a transparent way to measure each restaurant’s environmental accomplishments, while providing a pathway for the next steps each restaurant can take towards increased environmental sustainability.

The seven environmental categories

  1. Water Efficiency
  2. Waste Reduction and Recycling
  3. Sustainable Durable Goods & Building Materials
  4. Sustainable Food
  5. Energy
  6. Reusables & Environmentally Preferable Disposables
  7. Chemical and Pollution Reduction
