Greg Overbeck (R), owner of Chapel Hill Restaurant Group and Green Plus's Chris Carmody

Congratulations to Chapel Hill Restaurant Group for its recent Re-Certification with Green Plus. 

Chapel Hill Restaurant Group, which manages some of the most popular restaurants in the Triangle area of North Carolina, was the very first business to earn Green Plus Certification back in 2009. 

CHRG earned its Re-Certification through such practices as:

  • Having two LEED Certified restaurants, including MEZ, the first LEED Certified restaurant in North Carolina.
  • Unique recycling practices, including donating used oyster shells to rebuild oyster beds along the North Carolina coast.
  • Providing gift certificates to employees to encourage use of public transportation.
  • Giving all used cooking oil to Piedmont Biofuels to convert to biodiesel.


“The Chapel Hill Restaurant Group is proud of our recent recertification by Green Plus,” commented Greg Overbeck, owner of CHRG. “While validating our commitment to sustainable practices, the new tool also enables us to recognize our weakest areas and focus our efforts on new and improved ways to operate a sustainable business.”

CHRG has excelled in sustainability, and proven their commitment to the high economic, environmental, and social standards in their businesses that is required by Green Plus Certification.  Green Plus is proud to work with a leader in sustainability, and count them among our Certified organizations.

We educate, motivate, and recognize smaller enterprises for their efforts towards becoming more sustainable. We’re here to offer tangible, practical tips and expertise in sustainability.
