New Sustainable Food Policy

15 February 2013

As the College plays a significant role in the food chain, both as procurers and providers of food we have a responsibility to address the sustainability and carbon intensity of our food supply chains whether it is provided internally or through contractors.

In order to do this, the College has adopted a

Sustainable Food Policy [PDF 39KB]
which establishes high level policy commitment to improving performance around sustainable food, setting a good example for students and staff.  Attached to the Policy are time-bound targets to ensure that the intent of the Policy is met.  These targets relate to:

  • Customer engagement
  • Fair trade
  • Fish
  • Fruit and Vegetables
  • Meat
  • Dairy
  • Eggs
  • Dry Grocery
  • Water
  • Carbonated drinks and water in plastic bottles
  • Hospitality menus
  • Disposables
  • Cleaning materials
  • Waste
  • Transport

The College will monitor its performance and report on the progress of achieving the targets on an annual basis.
