“There are many changes an operator can make to create a more sustainable industry. Big and small, these changes drive profitability, customer experience, staff engagement, and public perception about your brand. If your aim is to be a profitable establishment where customers enjoy eating, and qualified staff want to stay, then the benefits are apparent. Add to this the knowledge that you have contributed to sustainability in a highly impactful industry, and you did it well. Sustainability is not just an environmental concept; it’s a fundamental business concept.” Janine Windsor, LEAF
“Companies with a strong foothold in sustainable practices have realized substantial monetary savings, increased their public exposure, increased revenue and have a strong marketing advantage. This is not just a right thing to do for the environment and community, but also for your business’s bottom line.” Eva Greff, NewSpring Energy
