Green Restaurant Certification Program

The Little Rock Zoo and the City of Little Rock Sustainability Office are proud to partner on the Swing Into Action: Green Restaurant Certification Program (GRCP) Guidelines. As a zoo accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), the Little Rock Zoo promotes conservation initiatives that encourage sustainable environmental practices.

Conservation of wild spaces protects the animals we live with and helps grow a better community for us all. The GRCP is just one way the Little Rock Zoo and the City of Little Rock promote sustainability every day.

The City of Little Rock Sustainability Office promotes efforts to sustain our environment, enhance our economy, and achieve social equity. It is our hope that the GRCP will be a useful resource to guide sustainability initiatives in your food service operation and that this program can be a catalyst for other green business initiatives.
