Green Chicago Restaurant Coalition, an environmental conservation organization, serves to increase the availability and accessibility of environmentally responsible goods and services to Chicago's foodservice community, educate consumers about sustainable dining, event, and catering options throughout Chicagoland, and assist foodservice operators in making their operations more environmentally sustainable, effectively reducing the foodservice industry's collective environmental footprint.The mission statement of the coalition is: "to preserve the environment and conserve natural resources by helping Chicago’s foodservice industry reduce its collective environmental footprint."The Green Chicago Restaurant Coalition works with Shedd Aquarium's Right Bite Program on educating area restaurants on sustainable seafood. The sourcing of sustainable seafood is one component of participating in the coalition's "Guaranteed Green" program. The Guaranteed Green program enables diners in Chicago to identify and support restaurants that have achieved a markedly high level of environmental responsibility.
The Guaranteed Green program is available to any licensed foodservice establishment that is seeking to become certified as such by being evaluated against a number of comprehensive environmental standards for restaurants. In order to earn Guaranteed Green certification, a restaurant must achieve significant standards in the areas of sustainable food purchasing, cleaning products, disposables, and furnishings, as well as in their management of energy, water, and waste.
