Microsoft Achieves Green Restaurant Association’s 2-star Certification

  • Comments 0

Microsoft's main campus in Redmond, Washington has earned the Green Restaurant Association's (GRA) 2-Star Certified Green Restaurant, becoming the first and only corporate dining program to earn this level. The GRA’s star certification process is based on a points system and awards points in categories such as Water Efficiency, Waste Reduction & Recycling, Sustainable Furnishing & Building Materials, Sustainable Food, Energy, Disposables, and Chemical & Pollution Reduction.

Since July 2008, Microsoft has worked with the GRA, a national non-profit organization, to reduce the environmental impact our on-campus cafes. Microsoft serves over 30,000 people a day in its Redmond cafes and is working to operate the cafés in an efficient and sustainable manner. A total of 33 Microsoft cafes have reached the GRA's 2-Star certification.
