Sodexo Canada has reduced CO2 emissions by nearly 500 tonnes since 2017


Burlington, February 8, 2022 - Sodexo Canada today announced its achievement of the RE100 scope 2 target a full four years earlier than planned. With scope 2 emissions now at zero, this work helps contribute to Sodexo’s larger 34% carbon reduction target by 2025 across Scope 1, 2 & 3 emissions.  

Scope 1 emissions are the greenhouse gases produced directly from sources that are owned or controlled, for example, from the combustion of fuels in vehicles or in heating buildings. That goal was achieved by Sodexo Canada on December 22, 2021. Scope 2 GHG emissions are those generated indirectly from the consumption of purchased energy (electricity, heating and cooling), and were brought to zero in Canada at the end of 2021. Scope 3 GHG emissions are indirect emissions resulting from an organization’s operations. 

At Sodexo Canada, we started the journey of reducing our carbon footprint many years ago, mentioned Normand St-Gelais, Director Corporate Social Responsibility at Sodexo Canada. Our partnership with Bullfrog Power since 2017 helped us to achieve our target 4 years earlier than targeted. This achievement demonstrates how serious Sodexo is when it comes to Climate Changes. We are not just talking about it, we are doing something.

Sodexo offices and warehouse are proudly powered by Bullfrog Power with green energy from renewable sources which allows us to reduce the carbon footprint and support the growth of renewable energy in Canada. Thanks to our partnership with Bullfrog Power, we’ve reduced CO2 emissions by 496.4 tonnes since 2017. 

The RE100 is a global initiative led by The Climate Group and brings together the world’s most influential businesses committed to 100% renewable power. Globally, Sodexo is a member of this initiatives and have committed to use 100% renewable electricity in its operations, including all electricity used at our leased or owned sites, by 2025.
