Eco Responsible

Aramark, we're committed to reducing environmental waste, optimizing waste management, and conserving energy and water both at work and at home, thereby contributing to creating a healthy and safe workplace for our clients and employees.



Aramark’s environmental policy advocates a GREEN strategy:

-  Generate pertinent information and transmit it to schools and governmental agencies as required

-  Reduce, reuse, recycle, and constantly reassess our ways of doing things

-  Exceed the requirements of environmental laws

-  Educate staff about environmental conservation

-  New methods are always sought for continuous improvement of the environmental program


Aramark’S first concern with regard to the environment and sustainable development is to take the same path as that taken by the numerous schools that its serves. Our program is wide-ranging and responds to the requirements and practices of each school or college, whether it is recycling of various resources, reduction of packaging, saving energy and water, or other steps.

At Aramark, we recognize the importance of environmental protection and sustainable development so that we leave a better world to future generations, and we are committed to promoting these values through the services that we offer.
