Four pub operators are launch members of the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA).

Eat, Sleep & Drink's Felin Fach Griffin and Gurnard's Head, owned by the Inkin brothers, Geetie Singh's Duke of Cambridge in Islington and the Thomas Cubbitt in London's Belgravia are among the 85 members of the SRA.

The SRA is a not-for-profit organisation aiming to make sustainability a primary responsibility of the UK restaurant industry.

Funded mainly by charitable foundations and the lottery, the SRA will help members understand and address issues such as waste, energy and food-sourcing policies.

It will also provide a standard assessment, recognisable by potential diners. Other members include Carluccio's and Leon.

"With our long track record for sourcing food and drink with benefits to our local community, and limiting food miles at the front of our minds, we feel we're going in the right direction," said Edward Inkin said.

"The SRA will give us the impetus and ability to make amazing improvements that we hope will benefit everyone from our teams to our communities."
