green-seal-logo2Restaurants seeking to be “green” have another measure of confidence now that the American National Standards Institute has approved the Green Seal Environmental Standard for Restaurants and Food Services (Gs-46).

The Green Seal standard for restaurants was first published in May. It measures the impacts of food, energy and water use and related supplies, according to a press release.

The standard was developed based on recommendations from more than 100 industry trade groups, operators, suppliers, academia and environmental and health organizations. The restaurant standard joins more than 40 other related Green Seal standards.

In Chicago, a restaurant industry group has launched its own “Guaranteed Green” program, under which establishments can be certified by either the Green Seal standard or the Green Restaurant Association, reports the Chicago Tribune.

The Green Chicago Restaurant Co-op says it established the program to help eco-minded restaurants differentiate themselves.
