We are proud to have achieved a 3 star Sustainable Restaurant Association rating scoring highly in many areas such as celebrating local and seasonal food, and efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Our Environmental Commitment
As the University Catering and Retail Services Team, we take our responsibilities to the environment very seriously. As part of our commitment to the University's climate change emergency declaration, we're always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint and increase our sustainability.
One of our most recent achievements include switching to electric vehicles for our delivered food service, which has seen a drastic reduction in our emissions.
As well as working hard to ensure that our daily practices are as sustainable as possible, we have made the following environmental commitments:
- To ahdere to the University Sustainable Food Policy
- To maintain Fairtrade Accreditation
- To maintain a minimum of Level 2 Sustainable Restaurant Association rating across University owned catering facilities
- To reduce plastic waste as part of the UoE Single Use Plastic Strategy 2018.
We are proud to work with some talented and passionate local suppliers who care about their impact on the environment.
