Sustainability has become a focus for not only Sodexo but the University community as well. We recognize that we have a responsibility to use our resources wisely and to protect them for future generations. Natural materials, foods, packaging, proper farming and trade practices, and innovative recycling programs are just a few of our sustainable practices.
Here at UNB and on campuses around the country, Sodexo is committed to developing and measuring ways to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, to conserve water, promote responsible waste management and reduce the use of toxic chemicals.
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.
We support local businesses and communities by purchasing from local producers and growers. Sodexo buys 100 percent of our fresh dairy products from local and regional farmers. Our professionally-trained chefs write our menus to take advantage of the fresh fruits and vegetables that are naturally in season.
Annually, Sodexo has a month long program called Servathon which raises funds, collects nonperishable food items and donates time and talent of our staff to support local Food Banks and other hunger related charities. At UNB, the employees support the Fredericton Food Bank.
Cage Free Eggs
We are shifting all our shell eggs to cage free sources. This shift is part of our Better Tomorrow Plan commitment to sustainability raised products.
