Food Service Warehouse (FSW), an online retailer of commercial kitchen equipment, has announced a green commercial kitchen certification program. The program uses a point system organized into five areas: energy conservation, water conservation, waste reduction, cleaning, and education. Except for the education category, most points are obtained by buying products designated as meeting FSW’s environmental requirements based on third-party testing and certifications.

While it is not necessary to buy anything from FSW to be certified as a Green Commercial Kitchen, the company’s catalog is integrated into the Web-based certification process. Restaurants with certified kitchens will receive table tents, menu inserts, and other promotional items to publicize their certification. For more information, visit
