What We're Doing

 

 

 

We work together to continually develop and implement sustainable solutions. Through Green Thread, our environmental sustainability platform, we bring innovative and efficient solutions to life. We are passionately focused on reducing the environmental impact within our operations. Here are just a few ways we work to make our campus more environmentally conscious:

 

Check Local Purchasing: Did you know the University of Alberta sources food from many local famers, growers and distributors? The list changes throughout the year depending on seasonality and availability.

Check Recycling: Dining Services partners with campus to recycle from all dining locations across campus. We are committed to minimizing our environmental footprint. Look for signs in our locations for information on where to put your recyclables.

Check Hydration Stations: Dining Services offers several hydration stations throughout campus. Use the filtered water stations to refresh and refuel while helping to impact your carbon footprint.

Check Energy & Water Conservation: We train our employees each semester on common energy and water conservation practices in order to conserve precious natural resources.
