Introduced in 2013, the Sustainable Restaurant Award recognises and rewards a restaurant within The World's 50 Best Restaurants list that demonstrates the highest levels of environmental and social responsibility. The award is determined by our partner, Food Made Good Global, using their industry-recognised Sustainability Rating, which assesses restaurants across three main pillars:
Sourcing: recognises restaurants celebrating local; sourcing fish responsibly; serving more vegetables and better meat; and supporting global farmers
Environment: recognises restaurants that value natural resources; reduce, reuse and recycle; and don’t waste food
Society: focuses on restaurants treating staff well; using their influence at the top end of the industry to promote sustainable dining; and supporting the community
Only restaurants in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants that complete the rating are considered for the award. The winner is the restaurant that best demonstrates that it is doing good as well as serving incredible food. In 2019, all restaurants from the 50 Best and 51-100 list are eligible to apply.
