Moving Forward Together

Without information sharing and cross-industry and cross-sector collaboration, our corporate responsibility efforts would bear little fruit. We strongly believe that protecting our natural resources requires collaboration. That's why we are taking action alongside like-minded stakeholders: clients, suppliers, institutions, partners, and competitors.

WWF, a long-term partner

We have partnered with the WWF since 2010, working toward a 34% reduction in our carbon emissions by 2025 (compared to a 2017 baseline). Together, we have identified four workstreams contributing to achieve the target: Increase the share of “low-carbon” menus, source responsibly, reduce food waste and employee engagement.

Our Other Collaborations

Adding more plant-based food options to menus nationwide

HSI/Canada's Forward Food program will train Sodexo chefs on plant-based cooking techniques and work with Sodexo leadership to develop new, custom plant-based recipes. Select Sodexo accounts will transition at least 20% of their current menu items to be plant-based with support from HSI/Canada's Forward Food program.

Introducing the freshest possible produce to our kitchens

Primarily growing leafy greens such as lettuce and kale, our partnership with ZipGrow™ not only enables us to reduce our carbon emissions of distance traveled for food source, onsite food waste, and packaging requirements, but also to introduce innovative technology to our facilities and team members.

Reducing up to 50% of our food waste

WasteWatch powered by LeanPath is Sodexo’s global program to prevent and reduce food waste. We use an automated waste tracking and analytics platform to measure food waste performance with a goal of preventing it before it happens. A whooping 40% of food produced in Canada goes to waste. Much of the waste ends up in landfills, creating greenhouse emissions and contributing to global warming.

Sourcing and preparing fresh, local, seasonal produce

We’re partnering with Aliments du Quebec to bring their program, Aliments du Quebec au menu, to our units to certify that our recipes use local ingredients from the province. This partnership helps us ensure we’re using local ingredients and contributing to the Quebec economy while reducing our impact and reducing waste.

A focus on renewable energy

Thanks to our partnership with Bullfrog Power, we’ve reduced CO2 emissions by 465 tonnes since 2017. Our offices and warehouses are proudly powered by Bullfrog, with green energy that allows us to reduce our carbon footprint and support the growth of renewable energy in Canada.

Working towards zero waste

We’re teaming up with the NZWC to advance our zero waste efforts and provide our teams and clients with resources to reduce waste. Our zero waste efforts are aligned with the Zero Waste Hierarchy, which outlines the different strategies to support the zero waste system – from the highest and best use of materials to the lowest.
