ANSI Approves Green Seal for Restaurants

green-seal-logo2Restaurants seeking to be “green” have another measure of confidence now that the American National Standards Institute has approved the Green Seal Environmental Standard for Restaurants and Food Services (Gs-46).

The Green Seal standard for restaurants was first published in May. It measures the impacts of food, energy and water use and related supplies, according to a press release.

The standard was developed based on recommendations from more than 100 industry trade groups, operators, suppliers, academia and environmental and health organizations. The restaurant standard joins more than 40 other related Green Seal standards.

In Chicago, a restaurant industry group has launched its own “Guaranteed Green” program, under which establishments can be certified by either the Green Seal standard or the Green Restaurant Association, reports the Chicago Tribune.

The Green Chicago Restaurant Co-op says it established the program to help eco-minded restaurants differentiate themselves.

One thought on “ANSI Approves Green Seal for Restaurants

  1. I think that it’s wonderful that Green Seal, a recognized leader in certification for environmentally preferable products, has developed a standard for restaurants that is being recognized by ANSI. In reading the standard, I noticed that another widely recognized rating system has been omitted from the “Recognized Certification Systems” for supplies. I believe that Greenguard (and especially the more stingent Greenguard for Schools), should have been included. I am a LEED Accredited Professional who writes and lectures on sustainable design and construction, and am not affiliated in any way with Greenguard.
