The Carolina Dining Services (CDS) team understands the responsibility to integrate a culture of sustainability into everyday operations in order to achieve success in sustainability. Campus dining programs have a considerable impact on many resources including food, water, waste, energy, and building construction. CDS strives to reduce its impact through many different initiatives, some of which include increasing the selection of local and third-party certified offerings, minimizing the waste stream, and reducing water and energy use.
At CDS, we work to foster partnerships within the campus community to help garner support and participation in its sustainable initiatives. Conscientious of the fact that dining services will always have an opportunity for improvement, CDS continually seeks to implement new initiatives and evolve current ones to achieve greater success in sustainability with each passing academic year.
