The Sustainability Calculator
is a free environmental impact tool NAFEM developed
in partnership with ASTM. The tool defines a standard method to measure and
report the environmental impact of foodservice equipment. The tool identifies
specific environmental factors, awards points to the corresponding factors and
calculates a total score. It helps clarify environmental impact factors that allow
product comparisons and provides data that may be used to prepare LEED
NAFEM’s Life Cycle/Total Cost of Ownership Tools
will help your organization
assemble and analyze information to consistently establish life expectancies and
total cost of ownership for commercial foodservice equipment and supplies.
Developed by NAFEM members, this document is an easy-to-follow reference guide
foodservice professionals to use when purchasing front-of-the-house equipment and
designed to aid consultants, dealer design personnel and operators in the proper
sizing and specification of steam equipment.
This valuable tool, used by manufacturers for many years to help explain to operators
how to care for and clean stainless steel, has been reformatted from a brochure to online
text for your convenience. The revised version of the care and cleaning brochure
includes 200 series stainless steel.
