Foodservice Equipment Reports

NAFEM-ASTM Sustainability Calculator Is A Click Away

Head to NAFEM’s website and check out a new tool developed by NAFEM and ASTM International. The Sustainability Calculator defines a standard method for foodservice equipment manufacturers to measure and report the environmental impact of products.

The Sustainability Calculator is an Excel spreadsheet that provides a standard method for foodservice equipment manufacturers to measure and report the environmental impact of products. It identifies specific environmental factors, awards points to the corresponding factors and calculates a total score. This information helps clarify environmental impact factors, allows product comparisons and provides data that may be used to prepare LEED submittals.

“Manufacturers and operators will use the Sustainability Calculator to communicate environmental impact information in a consistent fashion,” adds NAFEM Pres. Steven Follett, president, CEO and chairman of Follett Ice. “Doing business today means being more mindful and having a way to measure the impact of foodservice equipment and supplies is a great advantage.”

The calculator tool is offered as a companion piece to NAFEM’s Life Cycle/Total Cost of Ownership Model. Both tools are available free at nafem.org.
