Campus Initiatives

Better Tomorrow 2025

With nine measurable commitments, Sodexo’s global corporate responsibility strategy, Better Tomorrow 2025, focuses our actions to ensure a positive impact on individuals, communities and the environment. Our road-map was developed in accordance with the Sustainable Development Goals created by the United Nations. Sodexo is the recognized Sector Leader on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the 14th year in row and we were inducted into DiversityInc’s Top 40 Hall of Fame.

Dining Initiatives

We are proud to served certified cage-free shelled eggs in all of our dining locations. We also practice trayless dining which reduces food waste through encouraging students to take what they will eat and saves on water and energy through eliminating the need to run trays through the dishwashers.

Local Suppliers

At USJ Dining we work with our suppliers to source local goods whenever possible. By doing this we help to cut down gasoline usage and carbon emissions caused by long distance travel for deliveries. This also allows us to give back to our community through supporting local farms and businesses.

Eliminating Food Waste

Sodexo implemented food waste tracking methods to assist Sodexo-managed campuses throughout the country to reduce waste. By identifying and correcting the reasons for food disposal, we increased awareness of the value of all preconsumer food being discarded and created a culture of fighting waste on campus. A certain amount of waste is unavoidable, so when we can do so safely, we donate surplus food to those in need. We partner with 51 Food Recovery Network chapters and 22 Campus Kitchens.
