We work with restaurants to eliminating their greenhouse-gas emissions: a Zero Foodprint. There are three main approaches: conservation, restoration and offsets.

Operational improvements

We work with restaurants to make smart, non-intrusive improvements that can reduce their carbon impact and design environmentally friendly menus. Many of these changes end up saving the restaurants money on utility bills.

improving the
grid of food

Sixty to seventy percent of a restaurant’s footprint typically comes from the food itself. We help restaurants find and invest in climate beneficial producers and production methods. Restoring soil health is a primary solution to global warming.

carbon credits and carbon farming

Even the most efficient restaurants still have a carbon footprint. Zero Foodprint restaurants support a number of food-related carbon-reduction projects around the world to offset their remaining emissions. And we are excited to partner with the State of California to scale up carbon farming efforts.
