April 22, 2014
Sodexo Canada continues to lead the industry in sustainability and corporate citizenship and celebrated Earth Day with the announcement that it has been recognized as one of Canada's Greenest Employers for the fourth consecutive year.
Companies were assessed on their success in fostering a culture of environmental awareness. The recognition from Mediacorp Canada is based on Sodexo’s Better Tomorrow Plan, the company’s formal roadmap to sustainability, which guides the company toward integrating sustainable business practices into day-to-day operations. The plan includes companywide commitments to reducing the company’s carbon footprint, water consumption, waste diversion and composting, and engaging its customers and suppliers to do the same.
“We are proud of this recognition and continue our commitment to our sustainability strategy. This year, in addition to our prior initiatives, we have focused on reducing waste at our client sites,” explained Dean Johnson, President of Sodexo Canada. “Through the sharing of best practices and economical solutions along with the tools to implement, our clients are seeing tangible results.”
