Go Green

At RH we try our best to work sustainably and engage in eco-friendly practices. We understand that choosing to make green initiatives can seem like a daunting task, especially for those who are unfamiliar with energy-saving tips.

In this guide we outline a number of eco-friendly options and energy saving tips to lower energy costs and help the environment. We can provide ENERGY STAR® qualified equipment to swap out for older models, that will significantly reduce energy costs in the long term. We also offer Planned Maintenance programs to ensure kitchen equipment is running at peak performance, rather than wasting energy and money. Our team of designers will work with restaurant owners to ensure their kitchen layout is efficient and provide solutions to inefficiencies.
