Подробнее о Greentable

The essence of sustainable development is that the development of the present generation is carried out without prejudice to future generations. The concept of sustainable development includes three components: economic, environmental and social.

Restaurants, bars and cafes can also be sustainable and combine all three components.

  • The ecological component means taking care of nature, respecting resources, and reducing waste.

  • The economic component includes support for local businesses and looks at efficiency in terms of long-term and beneficial results from operations.

  • The social component implies active involvement in the life of the community and can be manifested in the support of socially vulnerable groups of the population.
