The Pittsburgh region’s restaurant industry now has another seat at the table for advancing quality of life and competitiveness.
Building on the emerging trend of sustainability in the restaurant industry (valuing people and planet in addition to profits), the local nonprofit Sustainable Pittsburgh has announced the launch of the Sustainable Pittsburgh Restaurant program, a sustainability performance program providing recognition for leading restaurants in southwestern PA.
“Going green and being more sustainable is a moral obligation that we have to our guests, our children and our environment,” said Stephen Musciano, general manager sports and entertainment for Aramark at PNC Park and an early proponent of the program. “Our guests are becoming much more aware of the need to go green. This is not a fad, but becoming a way of life—a better way to live!”
