Sustainability

img-sustainability Sustainability is a journey, not a destination. CulinArt’s approach to sustainability is based on an active commitment to continuous innovation and growth. Our sustainability mission enables us to meet the diverse needs of our clients while simultaneously addressing the challenges of a rapidly changing food landscape: Our mission is to constantly innovate and evolve our culinary, social, environmental, and business practices in our venues (along our supply chains, and within our communities), exceeding the expectations of our clients, partners, and people, every day. We have established a Sustainability Framework that is built on three pillars: Food, Stewardship, and Experiences. Across these focus areas, our work is guided by these principles:

  1. We are committed to preparing delicious, innovative, high-quality food that meets the current and ever-changing needs of the marketplace;
  2. We build strong relationships with our clients and communities by being responsive, transparent, and responsible;
  3. Our sustainability programs are based on a continuous cycle of research, reflection, improvement, and communication;
  4. We prioritize the well-being of our clients, team members, partners, communities, and the environment.

What do these principles mean to CulinArt? They mean that as a company, CulinArt is committed to researching, understanding, and incorporating emerging best practices in procurement, facilities management, and health and wellness. They mean that while we understand that preparing delicious food that delights the senses is the core of our business, we also need to be financially, environmentally, and socially responsible. And, they mean that we recognize and work with the different needs, capabilities, and resources across different geographies and clients. We both learn from and lead clients every day.

How do these principles translate into sustainability practices? Our sustainability practices range from establishing purchasing standards to improve the sustainable profile of the goods we purchase, to assisting our clients in meeting their own goals for sustainability – whether it be reducing water and energy usage, to growing herbs and vegetables on company or campus grounds, eliminating use of Styrofoam, or composting kitchen scraps, among other things.

“The dinner I had tonight at Forman was not only the best meal I have had at Forman in the entire time I have been here, it was the best meal I can remember having anywhere in a long time. [It] was a restaurant quality meal, and it added to the enjoyment that the two young ladies serving me could not have been more charming. What an energizing way to finish a weekend eating a dinner like that.”
