Sustainable food and drink
Launched in April 2019 on the South Kensington Campus, Plantworks is Imperial’s first entirely plant-based and vegan catering outlet. Plantworks features a bespoke and fresh menu of plant-based foods and drinks, encouraging staff and students to choose a healthier option at lunchtime and make their diet more sustainable for the planet.
Drink, Refill, Repeat
The Drink, Refill, Repeat campaign, a collaboration between Campus Services and Greening Imperial, encourages students and staff to transition from disposable drinks bottles and toward reusable containers.
To support this, we have introduced new water fountains across our campuses and removed plastic cups from water stations, saving approximately 850,000 plastic cups per year.
Sustainable Food & Drink Policy
The final policy will be published in September 2022, with a draft version now available on our Catering pages.
This policy will guide the menus we develop, how we procure our food and equipment and how we increase awareness on how what we eat impacts the environment.
