Home / Industry Impact / Conservation
Environmentally responsible practices are becoming the new normal across the industry, as restaurateurs recognize that recycling, waste reduction, and water and energy efficiency are good for their business and our world.
Operators’ commitment to an efficient “green” business model is strong and growing. An estimated 82% of restaurants participate in recycling.
Restaurateurs appreciate efficiency. An average 75% of operators purchased energy-saving light fixtures in 2012 and reduced their utility bills.
The NRA’s Conserve program promotes best practices with new ideas and tools that make conservation easy and rewarding.
Restaurants are voluntarily adopting and innovating new practices.
A majority of operators across all industry segments have or are looking to invest in energy-and water-efficient technologies, both to save money and conserve the environment.
The Association’s Conserve Sustainability Education Program engages and leads operators towards environmentally sound, efficient practices.
