Has the institution adopted sustainability policies or guidelines for food service franchisees operating on campus?:

A brief description of the guidelines for franchisees:

Franchisees are operated by Sodexo who operated all NAU Campus Dining facilities, incorporating sustainability initiatives in their day to day operations. For example, NAU Campus Dining removed plastic bags from operations the fall of 2009 and all retail locations on campus including franchises complied. This eliminated the need for 33,000 plastic bags annually on our campus, or approximately 1 ton of carbon emissions. Reusable water bottles are provided for new students and refill discounts offered at all locations. This fall, styrofoam will be eliminated from all units, with Jamba Juice introducing a new cup.
