NAFEM-ASTM Sustainability Calculator Unveiled

Head to nafem.org and check out the NAFEM Sustainability Calculator, developed by the North American Association of Food Equipment Manufacturers in partnership with ASTM Int’l.

The calculator uses an Excel spreadsheet to define a standard method for foodservice equipment manufacturers to measure the environmental impact of products. It identifies specific environmental factors, awards points to the corresponding factors and calculates a total score. It also helps clarify environmental-impact factors, allows product comparisons and provides data that may be used to prepare LEED submittals. The calculator is a companion tool to NAFEM’s Life Cycle/Total Cost of Ownership Model, available for free on the NAFEM website.
