Aramark Sustainability

Aramark, a leading professional services provider, has worked in cooperation with Christian Brothers University to limit the environmental impact of our business practices in custodial and food services.

As part of Aramark’s “Blue Cleaning Program”, Custodial Services recently purchased an Orbio 5000-Sc ionizer, which uses an electric charge to transform water into an effective alkaline multi-purpose cleaning solution; this technology has allowed us to reduce our purchases of chemical cleaning solutions by 50% and provides a healthier and cleaner indoor environment for our faculty, staff, and students.

Aramark’s Food Services has made equally significant changes to operations in the Alfonso Dining Hall. With 2000 gallons of fry oil recycled a year, the implementation of trayless dining, the increase in vegetarian food options, and the purchase of a new energy-efficient dishwasher that uses heat instead of chemicals to sanitize dishes we have greatly reduced our food waste and water consumption, and diminished the amount of chemicals entering the water system.
