Sustainability in university catering


Everybody’s talking about it, the Studentenwerke do it: in their management of university catering, they act and work in a sustainable manner.


Surveys show that 68% of young people aged 15 to 24 are aware of sustainable development. They know that an intact environment is the basis for further economic, social and cultural development. This is especially true for students.

Germany’s Studentenwerke are aware of their responsibility for sustainable development. Environmentally conscious behaviour as well as the economic use of resources and energy is a major topic in all divisions of the Studentenwerke.

In university catering too, sustainability not only means the preparation of "organic meals" but also refers to a long chain of activities from planning and purchasing, via production processes to waste management.
