The Sustainable Restaurant Association: Helping our restaurant members become global leaders in sustainability.

What is the SRA?

Simply, we’re a not for profit membership organisation helping restaurants become more sustainable and diners make more sustainable choices when dining out.

We help restaurants source food more sustainably, manage resources more efficiently and work more closely with their community. And we help diners identify those restaurants doing the right thing. So, whether a diner’s sustainability concerns are about Sourcing, the Environment or Society, the SRA and its members are committed to a change for the better.

Our President, Raymond Blanc, is among the chefs leading the way – watch Raymond’s video and hear what he has to say.

Sounds good. Tell me more.

Our independently verified Sustainability Rating system means diners can choose a restaurant that matches their sustainability priorities. We recognise restaurants as One, Two or Three star sustainability champions depending on how they rate against a wide range of criteria covering 14 areas of sustainability. Whether you’re looking for sustainable seafood, an all-organic experience or a menu that’s local and seasonal, our Restaurant Guide has it covered.

We also help keep sustainability on the news agenda at a local and national level. One of our past campaigns, Too Good To Waste, was aimed at tackling restaurant food waste.

We believe diners have an essential role to play in supporting those restaurants that do the right things and encouraging those who need a little push. Join the Friends of the SRA and make your voice count.
