Founded in 2014, ZeroFoodprint is a nonprofit project led by Chris Ying (Lucky Peach), Anthony Myint (The Perennial), and climate-change expert Peter Freed.
Trying to be an environmentally conscientious business can be a complicated and intimidating endeavor. We try to simplify things for restaurants by focusing in one issue: climate change. The global food system accounts for roughly one-third of the world's greenhouse gases. ZeroFoodprint helps restaurants understand their own impact, and work with them to reduce and offset their carbon emissions. We partner with the world's most influential restaurants in order to demonstrate that positive change is not only possible, but, with a little effort, completely achievable.
