The article provides insights for non-commercial food service operators on how to reduce environmental impact and comply with the Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) system in the U.S. Paper products produced from a high amount of recycle material can be used in executive dining rooms to earn LEED credit. The use of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in paint and other products should be avoided. Operators should also educate the public about LEED standards.
