Why Does Sodexo Engage?

 

Agriculture can have a significant impact over greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption, pollution and deforestation. It also potentially harms health through the use of pesticides, fertilizers and antibiotics.

 

How Does Sodexo Engage?

 

Sodexo is working with the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) to develop a sustainable sourcing strategy for the following priority commodities: fruits and vegetables, soy, beef and dairy. These are the most important for our business and have the highest environmental impact.

More commitments on Sustainable Supply Chain:

Supplier Code of Conduct

All of Sodexo’s suppliers are required to pledge to conduct business with the highest ethical, social and environmental practices as defined by our Supplier Code of Conduct.

Sustainable Fish and Seafood

Seafood consumption has doubled over the last 40 years, but fish stocks have not kept pace.

Sustainable Equipment and Supplies

We currently use 1.5 Earths to support our activities and by 2030 humanity will need the capacity of two Earths.
