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:

Local Purchasing

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


Recycling

check
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.

Hydration Stations

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

Energy & Water Conservation

check
We train our employees each semester on common energy and water conservation practices in order to conserve precious natural resources.
