Sodexo is committed to supporting sustainability through our Better Tomorrow Plan.
We recycle on campus to reduce and reuse material. On Campus we recycle the following products: cardboard, glass, steel, aluminum, paper, plastic and e-waste.
Xprss Nap Dispensers save energy and waste. Not only are the napkins are made of 100% recycled paper, the dispensers encourage customers to take (and waste) fewer napkins. Energy is saved because less power is used to recycle paper products than to create them from virgin material.
Food waste in landfills creates methane, a greenhouse gas which is 21x more potent than CO2. Our first priority is to reduce food waste. We compost food waste to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and also to enhance and amend soil health by improving soil structure, enhancing micro-organism content, increasing drought tolerance and reducing need for water and fertilizers.
Bring your own reusable mug to fill up on your Java or Tea at any of our Cafés on campus.
We source our products from local suppliers such as Island Farms, Albion Fisheries, BC Local, Evergreen Herbs, and Sun Rich. Sourcing locally grown produce has a number of benefits which include better tasting food that is higher in nutrients, supporting local farm families, building communities, and preservation of local farms.
