As part of its continuing efforts toward achieving sustainability throughout its campus, Loyola Marymount University was recently awarded its second Green Restaurant Association 4-Star designation for its Roski Dining Campus Restaurant.
The designation has been awarded by the Green Restaurant Association, a national non-profit organization that provides a convenient and cost-effective way for restaurants, manufacturers, distributors, and consumers to become more environmentally responsible.
LMU has met the standards to address the Green Restaurant’s level of excellence in areas including waste, water, food, energy, furnishings, and chemical pollution.
These areas all impact the environment in some way and the association encourages colleges and universities to operate in a manner to meet the environmentally conscious values of the many students that are served on campus.
It is a third party auditable verification that requires documentation and ongoing continuous improvement.
“We are proud to achieve this designation over the course of the last two years,” said Raymond Dennis, CASP, Loyola Marymount University associate vice president for auxiliary management and business services. “Loyola Marymount University is one of the few institutions in the nation with multiple 4-Star ranked dining venues.”
