The University of Colorado Boulder (CU Boulder) seeks to enhance the sustainability experience of our students, faculty, staff and visitors by providing food that is healthy for people and our planet.

We encourage social and environmental justice in purchasing through the humane treatment of all living things, safe and fair working conditions and agricultural practices, and stewardship of ecosystems while operating in an economically sound manner.

CU Boulder endeavors to support practices and vendors that actively seek strategies to reduce the overall amount of pesticides and carbon footprint, support Colorado economies and stand alongside our peer institutions and private organizations in promoting a healthier, more sustainable agricultural system without significant financial impact on the University.

CU Boulder encourages its suppliers to support these practices and to share CU Boulder’s values with others in order to have a global effect on sustainability.
