Sustainability

We work together to continually develop and implement sustainable solutions at MIT. We call these programs and policies Green Thread as they weave throughout our operations every day! Here are just a few ways we work to make our campus more environmentally conscious.

  • We offer zero-waste events and are proud to be the first caterer on campus to offer this! We recycle or compost all food preparation scraps and packing materials.
  • We source food from many local farmers, growers and distributors. The list changes throughout the year depending on seasonality and availability.
  • We 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.
  • One hundred percent of fryer oil is recycled.

What is Green Thread?

It’s the thread that keeps us together. It ties us to the environment and reminds us that we’re all connected.

At Aramark Higher Education, we have a deep respect for and commitment to protecting and improving the environment. We work to reduce our environmental footprint while delivering exceptional operational results. We also offer expertise and practical solutions to our campus partners to help them reduce their environmental impacts. We develop and implement long-term environmental stewardship programs and policies within the areas of sustainable food; green buildings; waste stream management; responsible procurement; energy and water conservation; and transportation. We call these programs and policies Green Thread as they weave throughout our business operations every day!
