By protecting and improving our environment, the communities where we do business and the students we serve, Sodexo makes every day a better day and every tomorrow a better tomorrow.

Sustainability Initiatives

Your Sodexo Campus Dining Team is dedicated to sustainability.  We know we can all work together to make a positive impact right here at Concordia University Wisconsin. In addition to the many initiatives we take on as a company, we have implemented the following programs specific to Concordia University Wisconsin.

Waste Reduction Efforts

Recycling

On campus we recycle the following products: cardboard, glass, aluminum, paper, plastic.

Xprss Nap Dispensers

Xprss Nap Dispensers save energy and waste.  The napkins are made of 100% recycled paper and the dispenser will 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.  

APEX Dishwashing System

APEX combines technology and products designed to save water and energy, minimize the impact of products on the environment, and has a built-in method of measuring results. The APEX management approach uses a tablet PC and wireless technology to communicate with the system’s controller to download, process and analyze data to establish each foodservice operation’s “rack-to-guest ratio.” By monitoring and improving this ratio, the system helps reduce the amount of water and energy used at each facility, and improve total operational efficiency.

Bulk Condiments

Individual packets of condiments are useful in some instances, but they result in extra waste.  If you are dining on site or you can add the sauce to your item before you leave, please use the bulk dispensers to reduce our waste.

Recycling Fryer Oil into Biofuel

Our used cooking oil is reclaimed, renewed, and then returned to the marketplace as a vital ingredient in lubricants, animal feed, and even clean-burning biofuel.

Local / Seasonal / Responsible Sourcing

Starbucks

Starbucks takes a comprehensive approach to ethical sourcing, using responsible purchasing practices; farmer support; economic, social and environmental standards; industry collaboration and community development programs.
