WASHINGTON, D.C. — Green Seal, the premier ecolabel in the United States, has announced the release of GS-46, Environmental Standard for Restaurants and Foodservices. GS-46 focuses on responsible food purchasing and waste reduction to reduce the impact from food.
 
The standard is a result of extensive research in all areas of a restaurant's environmental impact, with input from more than 100 stakeholders, including industry trade groups, operators, suppliers, academia, and environmental and health organizations. It is based on life-cycle research involving the evaluation of the sources of environmental impacts such as food, energy and water use, and waste. The results of the research included in the new standard will help operators prioritize where to focus their greening efforts. "For 20 years our standards and certification have helped green the lodging industry and a range of product industries," said Dr. Arthur Weissman, president and CEO.  
 
Green Seal's standard development process is ANSI-accredited and Green Seal standards are cited widely by governments, purchasers and other standards including Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.
