TORONTO — The Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association (CRFA) and the National Restaurant Association (NRA) have partnered to launch a Canadian version of the Conserve Sustainability Education Program, which will equip Canadian foodservice operators with the information needed to become more environmentally friendly.
“Environmental sustainability is a growing area of interest for our members and their customers. We look forward to leveraging Conserve’s best practices and lessons into a uniquely Canadian program that will help our members reduce their environmental footprint as well as saving them time and money,” said Garth Whyte, president and CEO of CRFA.
The online program, which offers tips on reducing energy, waste and water, is expected to launch nationally in the fall.
A Conserve Sustainability Education pilot program was launched in the U.S. in 2008.
