Sustainable food and drink

We're dedicated to promoting and embedding a sustainable food culture at NTU and beyond. Our Catering team works in partnership with our Environment and Procurement teams. Together they ensure we consider ethical, social and environmental factors. This informs the decisions we make about the products and services we provide.

We continually strive to be more environmentally friendly. Last year, we took 115 tonnes of waste destined for landfill and sent it to a biodigester to create green energy.
