As a service provider in 50 countries to 100 million consumers, we have a duty to tread lightly on the planet.
Whether it’s food, energy or water, we are working hard to reduce wastage and are actively engaging everyone in our path to do the same. Internationally we hold WasteLESS Week to promote waste reduction among our staff and clients; we also prevent food waste on client sites through our proprietary programme WasteWatch.

“In Singapore, all Sodexo sites reuse cooking oil as sustainable biofuel.”
Using sustainable ingredients and food products
We source local, seasonal, or sustainably grown or raised products in all the countries we operate. Sodexo is one of the first companies to switch to certified sustainable palm oil, without transferring additional costs to our clients.
“We are training all our staff to practice environmental sustainability at work and home.”
Choosing green equipment and supplies
We are thoughtful when choosing equipment and supplies such as cleaning products, disposables, office equipment and technical maintenance products. Sodexo has committed to using only sustainable products globally by 2020.
“We aim to cut carbon emissions by 34% by 2025.”
Giving consumers peace of mind
Our global supply chain of conduct demands that we check, double-check and sometimes triple-check all our suppliers to make sure that they meet satisfactory environmental and labour conditions. The vendors we work with need to verify these standards, sometimes by independent third parties before they become a Sodexo partner. We ensure they comply with our Global Supply Chain Code of Conduct in all the countries.
“Sodexo supports fair-trade products to protect the livelihoods of farmers and workers.”
