GLRPPR Sector Resource: Green Seal Standard for Restaurants and Food Services (GS-55)

Title:
Green Seal Standard for Restaurants and Food Services (GS-55)

Abstract:
GS-55 provides the food industry with a leadership-level benchmark for protection of environmental and human health. The requirements address the significant impacts of food services: sustainably-sourced food (options are local and environmentally preferable), waste minimization, use of environmentally-preferable products, and conservation of energy and water. The scope of this standard includes full-service, limited-service, catering, takeout, food service operations supporting the main activities of larger establishments (e.g., schools and hospitals). It does not cover bars, vending machines, grocery stores, or convenience stores.
