Your Sodexo Campus Dining Team is dedicated to sustainability. We know we can all work together to make a positive impact right here at New Mexico Military Institute.
We are proud to feature 100% Transfair, Fair Trade USA certified Aspretto coffee and 100% USDA certified organic and ethically sourced T2 teas.
Our napkins are made of 100% recycled paper and the dispenser will encourage customers to take (and waste) fewer napkins.
Trayless dining reduces the amount of water and detergents needed to wash trays - and saves energy too!
On campus we recycle the following products: cardboard, glass, aluminum, paper, plastic.
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.
Energy Star Appliances
ENERGY STAR is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) voluntary program that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect our climate through superior energy efficiency. When replacing equipment we choose Energy Star rated appliances.
The windows in our dining room allow us to enjoy a tremendous amount of natural light while dining. Natural light not only provides a more comfortable environment, it also reduces our energy usage by allowing us to turn off lights.
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.
All of our fluid milk is purchased from local dairies that do not use rBST.
92% of the chemicals Sodexo uses are “Green Seal” certified, concentrated or sustainable.
No Idling at Loading Docks
Working with our vendors, our catering staff and our campus facility services staff to make sure all vehicles are turned off while they are parked in our loading dock.
