We take being the greenest museum on Earth seriously.
The Academy Café and The Terrace are proud to be Certified Green Restaurants. The Green Restaurant Association (GRA) is a United States non-profit organization that provides certification for restaurants to become more environmentally responsible.
Since 1990, the GRA has been building an extensive database of environmental goals for the restaurant industry. They rate existing restaurants and food service operations with points in seven environmental categories- water efficiency, waste reduction and recycling, sustainable furnishings and building materials, sustainable food, energy, disposables, chemical and pollution reduction. Green Restaurant Certification allows diners to be able to rely on their favorite restaurant’s environmental claims and communicates credibility.
