        SRA launches


        In July, the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) launched Foodprint, a programme to support restaurants and
        the wider foodservice sector to track and reduce the planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions from the food they
        serve, while meeting rising consumer demand for a more conscious dining experience.
          To accelerate and maximise the change across as many commercial kitchens as possible, the SRA has partnered with the
        Cool Food Pledge. Run by the World Resources Institute (WRI), The Cool Food Pledge helps foodservice operators reduce
        their food-related emissions by 25% by 2030.
          “This partnership will open up access for operators to a straightforward way of measuring and tracking the climate impact
        of the food they serve, support and inspire them in developing plans to sell delicious dishes with smaller climate footprints,
        and promote their achievements as leaders in a growing movement,” said Andrew Stephen, Chief Executive, SRA.
