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 Harvey Mudd College. In addition to the many initiatives we take on as a company, we have implemented the following programs specific to Harvey Mudd College.

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.

Reusable Mug Program

Our students are issued a reusable mug at the beginning of the year to be used whenever they want to take their meal to go. We encourage them to use their reusable mug instead of using the paper cups for their to go drinks. They exchange their cup for a clean one everytime they want to eat outside of the dining hall. The reusable box program works in the same manner. We have almost completely eliminated the use of paper to go boxes and cups since the start of this program.
