ARAMARK Higher Education has partnered with Clean Air-Cool Planet (CA-CP) to support CA-CP’s development of the “CHarting Emissions from Food Services” (CHEFS) foodservice carbon calculator.

The new CHEFS tool will quantify the environmental impact of growing, producing, transporting, preparing, and disposing of food on North American college campuses. As the founding sponsor for this initiative, ARAMARK plans to share this new research data with all of its partner campuses.

Adam Markham, chief executive officer of CA-CP, said, “The CHEFS tool will be especially meaningful in that it is the first carbon footprint tool to reflect growing methods and supply chain models in the United States and Canada. Most existing programs use European data.”

The CHEFS program is being piloted on 10 ARAMARK-partner campuses. These include Arizona State University, Boston University, Grand Valley State University, Furman University, Johns Hopkins University, New York University, The Evergreen State College, University of Florida, Vassar College, and Wesley College.

The CHEFS tool will work in tandem with CA-CP’s current Campus Carbon Calculator, which tracks direct campus emissions, and is generally regarded as the “tool of record” for most of the 650 signatories to the American Colleges and University Presidents Climate Commitment (ACUPCC), a voluntary agreement to move toward campus climate neutrality.
