ANSI Approves Green Seal Standard for Restaurants

Green Seal's certification standard for restaurants and foodservice operations has been approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), making the guidelines the first of their kind to be nationally recognized, Green Seal said today.

The GS-46 Environmental Standard for Restaurants and Foodservices, released in May, is also the first Green Seal specification to be approved as an American National Standard.

The standard addresses food purchasing and waste reduction, which present the greatest opportunities for restaurateurs and foodservice operators to shrink their facilities' environmental footprint. Resource efficiency and water and energy management are among the other key issues covered.
