1 The is owned and developed by Residential and Commercial Services. It is approved by the Estates and Infrastructure Strategy Committee on the recommendation of the Environmental Management Working Group. Residential and Commercial Services provide food services across campus to: retail catering outlets, Halls of residence catering, conference and event catering. RACS recognises its responsibility to provide healthy and sustainable food to its customers. We will work to incorporate environmental, ethical and social considerations into the products and services provided. We recognise that it is our responsibility to encourage our suppliers and contractors to minimise negative environmental, ethical and social effects associated with the products and services they provide. We will also strive to ensure that local and smaller suppliers are not discriminated against in the procurement process and through our specifications. Our aims Source food and other products locally where possible in order to sustain the local economy and reduce environmental impacts. Ensure that through the supply chain and distribution mechanisms our suppliers are working to reduce their carbon footprint. Ensure that animal welfare standards are adhered to for any animal produce purchased and to insist on red tractor standards as minimum where applicable. Support suppliers who share our values. Communicate to customers, staff and suppliers our commitment to serving sustainable food. Improve our recycling scheme in the kitchens to increase the number of waste items that can be recycled. How we will meet our aims Enhance staff, customer and supplier awareness of relevant environmental and social effects of a sustainable diet via promotional guidance, product information and awareness campaigns. Work with our suppliers to progress the sustainability agenda. Set sustainability targets and measure our performance against these annually. Work with the Environment team to follow best practice and ensure that our local aims are aligned to the University strategic aims. Examine this annually, amend targets and communicate findings (including progress and gaps) to customers. Page 1 Updated April 2012

2 We commit to Actively support Fairtrade Fortnight and provide year round information and products which support Fairtrade initiatives. Using Fairtrade products where applicable. Using sustainable fish and raising awareness of alternative species. Offering a range of seasonal produce and providing customer communications which will clearly state this. Continued operation of our recycling policy within all of our kitchens to achieve a minimum of 55% waste being recycled. Making at least 40% of the daily menu vegetarian. Ensuring that all in house products are labelled to indicate sustainability features, including where possible, provenance of product, welfare status and trade status. Raising awareness of sustainable foods by utilising marketing tools available to us, including targeted promotions and events. Page 2 Updated April 2012

3 Targets Fairtrade Fish Increase our fairtrade product range providing a specific fairtrade area within delic!ous.

All fish demonstrably sustainable with all wild-caught fish meeting the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries (includes Marine Stewardship Council certification and Marine Conservation Society fish to eat ) Utilisation of diverse species of fish to reduce pressure on sensitive stocks and provision of information at the point of sale to inform our customers Farmed fish raised to high standards of welfare and fed only with proven sustainable feed. Avoid using fish as listed on the marine conservation Society s fish to avoid list and provision of information at the point of sale to inform our customers Fruit and Vegetables All fruit and vegetables to be Red Tractor Assured or equivalent and if from the UK should be Grade 1 or 2 (where Grade 2 relates only to appearance) and seasonal.
