Sustainable Restaurant Association

The Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) is a newly launched organisation aiming to make restaurants more sustainable.

Sustainability is "Meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs." (Brundtland, 1987).

This means that restaurants must manage their impact economically, environmentally and socially.

I believe that ensuring our economy and way of life becomes sustainable is one of the key issues facing society today. The launch of the SRA is an important milestone for the food and restaurant industry which I fully support.

The SRA defines sustainable restaurants as "restaurants that are making an active commitment to being more sustainable, by addressing issues and activities that fall into our 14 areas of sustainability. "

1 Local & Seasonal
2 Environmentally Positive Farming
3 Ethical Meat & Dairy
4 Sustainable Fish
5 Fair Trade
6 Supply Chain
7 Energy Efficiency
8 Water Saving
9 Waste Management
10 Workplace Resources
11 Healthy Eating
12 Community Engagement
13 Treating People Fairly
14 Responsible Marketing
