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 University of Hawaii at Hilo. In addition to the many initiatives we take on as a company, we have implemented the following programs specific to University of Hawaii at Hilo.

Corporate Citizenship & Sustainability

Corporate citizenship and sustainability are enormously important to doing business today. In Hawai`i we have a unique responsibility to conserve and protect the `aina (land) while also supporting and being a part of the communities that we have the privilege to serve and work with. As a comprehensive services solution leader we look at every opportunity to ensure that we are acting responsibly and making a difference in the communities that we serve.

As our motto states, we strive toward “making every day a better day.” To do this we are dedicated to addressing three different, but related, issues: environmental sustainability, economic sustainability and social sustainability. In the following brochure you will be introduced to our many efforts and accomplishments in these areas. We look forward to our continued work in making Hawai`i a better place to work and live, and to ensure that future generations will thrive and enjoy these beautiful islands.

Waste Reduction Efforts

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.
