We are committed to 4 key areas of concern: the Supply Chain code of conduct; local, seasonal and sustainably grown products; sustainable fish and seafood; and sustainable equipment and supplies
Water and effluents
We will reduce our water footprint in all the countries where we operate and at all clients’ sites by 2020.
UNITED STATES – The water conservation project involves installing new toilets, aerators and showerheads, resulting in savings of 2.6 million gallons of water and $47,000 annually. The project also includes melting down sharps for conversion into hockey pucks that can be disposed of in the regular trash, saving 90 on hazardous waste removal.
FRANCE – In 2008, Sodexo rolled out a new program called “So.Eco”, involving the implementation of three environmental practices at all 3,000 of its sites: processing waste, reducing effluents and other discharges, and saving water and energy. The program includes the distribution of best practice guides and training teams.
