About the Sustainability Expert Exchange

Our Sustainability Expert Exchange includes some of the biggest names in sustainability and sourcing in the foodservice industry, sharing what they are doing to improve the environmental footprint in their restaurant businesses. Whether you need guidance on food sourcing, animal welfare, or compostable foodservice packaging, this group is your window into what fellow restaurant industry leaders are doing and which strategies work best.
 
 

Listserv

As an added value for our members, the Sustainability Expert Exchange has a Listserv. The Listserv is an effective way to ask your colleagues questions, share news, and contribute to discussions on issues important to professionals in your field. To be eligible, you must work full-time in the field of sustainability (or related-field) for a company that is a restaurant member of the National Restaurant Association. Click here to subscribe to the Listserv.

Once you join the list, simply send your email message to sustainability@lists.restaurant.org. Your message goes to everyone who is subscribed to the list.

Expert Exchange Gatherings

Our Expert Exchange Gatherings are a way for our communities to connect virtually. These are collaborative, informal,  operator-led events, and they’re intended to touch on topics that are pressing and relevant to your jobs and to the restaurant industry as a whole. If you attend, you will get the opportunity to meet online with your peers, share, learn, and ask questions in an engaging and safe peer-to-peer environment. At a time when we cannot meet in-person, the need for connection is more important than ever. We are pleased to offer these Gatherings across all our communities on a recurring basis.

Please note the majority of our Gatherings are for National Restaurant Association members only. If you are interested in participating or curious when the next Gathering will be held, you may opt-in here to the community of your choice, and gain access to our upcoming Gatherings.
