We work together to continually develop and implement sustainable solutions. Through Green Thread, our environmental sustainability platform, we bring innovative and efficient solutions to life. We are passionately focused on reducing the environmental impact within our operations. 

Here are just a few ways we work to make our campus more environmentally conscious:
AU Sustainability

Locally Grown

We support local growers. See where your food comes from with out Local Grower's Map, and get more information about about the men and women who move your food from Farm to Fork!

Chilled Water Stations

Explore opportunities for filtered water stations to cut down on bottled water

Reusable To-Go Containers

We support the reusable to go program at the dining halls. Work with on-campus EcoReps and housing to spread the word.

Recycling in Dining Locations

Work with the University's waste management department to expand aluminum, plastic, and glass recycling focusing on back of the house.


We look for composting opportunities in all of our locations. When composting options do exist, we will explore compostable disposable options.
