Sustainability is the delicate balancing act of satisfying human needs today while protecting the environment for future generations. A sustainable approach requires careful consideration of environmental impact at every stage of the life cycle of a product or process from creation through use, recycling, reuse to eventual safe return to the environment. By its very nature, a sustainable approach is often efficient in its use of resources, and significantly healthier than alternatives.
Brock Dining Services is ahead of the curve of college and university dining services in terms of integrating sustainability into its operations. We are deeply committed to sustainable practices.
