In 2008, Bamboo Sushi became the world’s first certified sustainable sushi restaurant.


At Bamboo Sushi, we make every decision with the highest regard for this world and the people in it. From transparency in how we source our food to reducing our carbon footprint to enriching the communities we live in; our mission is to change the way people eat, inspiring a shift within the restaurant industry and beyond. Everything you eat has an impact — It’s time to know yours.


Fish is the most widely-consumed animal protein on the planet. Today, overfishing, lack of effective fishery management, and our own consumption habits are just a few factors contributing to a decline in fish populations across the world. According to the United Nations, 76% of our oceans’ fisheries are either overfished or completely depleted. Our generation has a responsibility to ensure our oceans can remain a plentiful food source for years to come.

Check out our Quarterly Report to see how we’re doing things differently.


In all things, we seek to lower our impact on this planet and inspire others to do the same. From the design of our restaurants to our operational decisions, we consider the following:   Our Sourcing – Using renewable resources, sourcing fish from plentiful populations, considering the catch method and its environmental impact Our Footprint – Considering the carbon, waste, energy, and environmental impact of our menu and operation Our Community – Ensuring that we, and those we work with, are having a positive impact on the health of their local community – no forced labor practices, contributing to local economies, benefiting developing nations Our Partners – Working with like-minded businesses and organizations that share our values, hold us to higher standards, and inspire us to constantly improve

Bamboo Sushi became the world’s first restaurant to know their carbon footprint down to the menu item. Click here to see the journey of our supply chain, and learn more about what we’re doing to remain carbon neutral.

We make mindful business decisions that connect environmental impact, the prosperity of our team members and purveyors, as well as the enrichment of the communities we live in. We look at business as a catalyst for change – through our partnership with B Corp, we identify opportunities for our teams to give back to the local community, connecting with our mission in a tangible way. We invite our guests to join us in these efforts through regular events, volunteer opportunities and continued education.
