Project Highlights: Eatery

February 4, 2010 at 8:50 am Leave a comment

from ETH Zurich University | Zurich, Switzerland

The team’s focus is on eaternity, a concept promoting the consumption of CO2-optimized meals, with the overall goal of reducing CO2 emissions related to food consumption on campus. To do this, they planned on analyzing the results from their 3-week pilot project where a CO2-optimized meal was offered in one of their canteens. Upon identifying which meals sold best, the team hopes to design new meals that are as attractive to students as the most popular meals. They planned on increasing the visibility of the optimized meals through labels. The team also hopes to encourage other universities to try out the concept by increasing the friendliness of their online CO2 calculator, improving their recipe database, and offer guides and coaching on how to get an Eaternity Program started on campus. Measurable results from this project include CO2 reductions, awareness of food sustainability on campus, and adoptions of Eaternity by other universities.
