The National Restaurant Association has announced its partnership with the Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association (CRFA) to launch a Canadian version of the Conserve Sustainability Education Program. The initiative will provide Canadian restaurant operators and foodservice establishments with tools and information to become more environmentally friendly in areas ranging from energy use to waste management.
"We are so pleased to begin this partnership with our friends in the Canadian restaurant and foodservice industry," said Dawn Sweeney, president and CEO of the NRA. "The National Restaurant Association launched the Conserve initiative to raise awareness and provide resources to every U.S. restaurant operator regardless of size, and it has been exciting to see how Conserve has grown in just a few short years."
The Conserve program in Canada is expected to launch in the fall and will have an online presence to ensure operators can easily access educational materials, including videos and case studies, similar to the original program, but customized for the Canadian market.
The Conserve Sustainability Education Program is an online resource designed to initiate environmentally friendly actions that also improve a company's bottom line. The program focuses on ways to reduce energy, waste and water.
