The National Restaurant Association has relaunched its Conserve website to include videos, case studies, best practices and more. The site was designed to educate restaurateurs about becoming more sustainable, reducing energy and water consumption, decreasing food waste, recycling, composting and operating business in environmentally and economically responsible ways, according to a news release.
"Practicing sustainability is no longer a trend, but an important aspect of the restaurant industry's daily operations," NRA EVP Scott DeFife said in the release. "With this new and improved website, we are well on our way to helping restaurateurs increase their efficiency, reducing the amount of energy, water and waste they generate while saving money and being environmentally aware at the same time. By sharing the experiences, best practices and knowledge of industry leaders who are meeting their sustainability goals, we can assist those who are just beginning their own sustainable journeys."
The NRA's Conserve sustainability program was created in 2009. More than 230 restaurant locations currently use the program.
