Earlier this month, the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA), which has as its president chef Raymond Blanc, expanded its verification rating system to the world. It was previously only for restaurants based in the United Kingdom, where the association itself is based.
"Global expansion of the SRA rating aims to create an international standard for sustainability in the professional food community," wrote the Green Program. "The SRA rating system, an online questionnaire to gauge a restaurants’ commitment to three tenets of sustainability — Society, Environment and Sourcing — has been used in the UK since 2009. Restaurants that score 50-59 percent receive One Star, 60-69 percent Two Stars and 70 percent and above Three Stars."
