Green Restaurant Association


The Green Restaurant Association�s (GRA) standards reflect 25 years of research in
the field of restaurants and the environment. Thousands of restaurants and hundreds
of thousands of restaurant personnel have provided the living laboratory for the
continued evolution of the GRA Standards. The purpose of the GRA standards is to
provide a transparent way to measure each restaurant�s environmental
accomplishments, while providing a pathway for the next steps each restaurant can
take towards increased environmental sustainability.

An acronym for Building for Ecologically Responsive Design Excellence, BERDE is the
Philippines� voluntary green building rating system developed by the Philippine
Green Building Council (PhilGBC), a member of the non-profit World Green Building
Council (WorldGBC). WorldGBC�s mandate is for every country to develop its own
rating tool, such as LEED (US), Green Star (Australia) and Green Mark (Singapore).
Like its foreign counterparts,
BERDE measures, verifies and monitors the performance of buildings above and beyond
existing mandatory building and environmental regulations and standards.
