A brief description of the single-use disposable plastics that have been banned or eliminated:
In the context of our #ACGgoesplastic free campaign, in November 2018 ACG launched a policy banning plastic cups and coffee cups from all ACG offices on campus. ACG offices are offered only biodegradable solutions through the procurement office and/or can use reusable cups/mugs.
Also, based on sustainability criteria mentioned in the ACG purchasing policy and suppliers' code of conduct, our main catering provides offers only compostable one-use items like coffee cups, straws, utensils, food containers.
