Last month we were awarded three stars in the Sustainable Restaurant Association’s (SRA) Food Made Good Sustainability Rating. This represents an increase of 20% since our last rating in December 2019 when we achieved one star and is the highest rating possible.
The SRA is an organisation whose membership represents a broad spectrum of the hospitality industry, all united in their commitment to sustainability. The Food Made Good Sustainability Rating provides members with recognition for their sustainability as well as a tool to engage staff, suppliers and inform customers.
To achieve the rating, Royal Holloway was were assessed against 10 key sustainability criteria. The university was commended by the SRA its sustainability initiatives and commitment to ethical best practices across all three pillars of sourcing, society and environment, scoring particularly highly for feeding people well (91%), wasting no food (89%) and supporting global farmers (85%).
