What is restaurant sustainability?
Restaurant sustainability is: Running a restaurant which is actively committed to the promotion of sustainable solutions to areas impacted by the business, such as the environment, food sourcing, and society.
Carbon Free Dining is the zero-cost restaurant sustainability initiative managed by The United Nations Environment partner, Green Earth Appeal, in partnership with Lightspeed ePOS.
Carbon Free Dining is game-changing in its simplicity and is designed to give restaurants Carbon Free Dining Certification, demonstrating their passion for the environment and displaying their restaurant’s sustainability efforts.
Carbon Free Dining Certified restaurants empower their restaurant diners to plant a fruit tree in the developing world to counterbalance the environmental impact of their meal and at the same time, help put an end to poverty.
It ensures that diners not only enjoy a great meal, but they also experience the feel-good factor which comes from knowing that they have been part of an environmental programme that creates positive change in the world.
Carbon Free Dining Certified restaurants, along with their diners have already counterbalanced the negative environmental impact of over 500,000 meals.
Mr Satinder Bindra, whilst Director of Communications for United Nations Environment described Green Earth Appeal’s dining initiative as ‘an outstanding initiative which successfully merges the luxury of eating out with the joy of knowing we are simultaneously giving something back to nourish our planet.’
