Energy savings

A large part of university budgets goes to energy expenditures. For institutions that often accommodate several thousand students, reducing energy consumption is a top priority.

Energy savings

Controlling consumption

Sodexo understands that lasting energy savings can be achieved more effectively through a comprehensive process than by a piecemeal approach. We have therefore engaged our experts to design innovative energy management systems to help our partners achieve their sustainability goals.

In the United Kingdom, Sodexo teams have enabled the University of Bradford to lower its natural gas and electricity consumption by 18 through the adoption of environmentally responsible best practices.

In the United States, at the Skidmore College, Sodexo developed and implemented a complete campus lighting retrofit, including projects using geothermal heating and cooling. These improvements qualified the College for LEED Certification. In a single year, between 2008 and 2009, the college reduced its electrical consumption by 4 while at the same time increasing its square footage.
