Waste is one of our biggest collective  challenges. Tackling it is critical to reducing  greenhouse gas emissions, protecting land and water and improving livelihoods



An issue close to our heart

When it comes to food waste, we have a particularly vital role to play. A third of food is wasted globally every day. The United Nations aims to cut food waste by 50% by 2030. We are uniquely positioned to help. With a supply chain of over 150,000 enterprises, 425,000 employees and 75 million consumers, there are many ways we can make a difference and revolutionize the way our industry deals with food waste.

Internally, we are committed to reducing food waste and conserving energy and water. So far, 89.7% of Sodexo sites have implemented equipment and processes to reduce organic waste.  And 81.5% of Sodexo sites have done the same for non-organic waste.

We have established a global program, WasteWatch – powered by LeanPath – which helps to identify causes and define action plans to prevent waste. Sites implementing WasteWatch can reduce food waste by 45% in two to six months.

We’re also committed to reducing waste beyond our own operations. So, we’re finding new ways to cut waste in the services we deliver to our clients and focusing on the role we play as a global leader in waste reduction.

30% of energy savings


Sodexo Facilities Management team conducted a walk-through energy audit at United World College of South East Asia – Dover Campus, in Singapore. The scope of the walk-through audit covered the energy consuming assets in the areas (kitchen, service, and dining) that are involved in Sodexo’s provision of food services to the client. The energy saving recommendations resulting from this audit generated electricity savings and helped demonstrate Sodexo’s capabilities on sustainable energy use to the client.
