Thinking globally, acting locally
September 28, 2018
SODEXO is a leading facilities management organisation dedicated to delivering quality of life services in more than 80 countries.
Leveraging best practices and commitment from Sodexo operations around the world, the company is driven by an ambitious corporate responsibility plan called Better Tomorrow 2025, addressing issues aligned with the UN Sustainability Development Goals.
Underpinning Sodexo’s global presence and Better Tomorrow 2025 commitments is a vast network of suppliers, partners and initiatives that put sustainability commitments into action on the ground, at every one of their sites.
Sodexo’s Partner Inclusion program, Aboriginal business incubation, as well as VTEC training and regional employment are just some of the localised activities implemented through the Reconciliation Action Plan Elevate company in Australia.
“Quality of Life is at the core of what we do and we seek to maximise our positive impact through our relationships with our clients, consumers, suppliers and local communities in which we operate,” Sodexo Australia director integrated facilities management (IFMS) Darren Hedley said.
“We have developed our approach to corporate responsibility by looking not only at the role we play as a large global organisation, but also the real impact we have as a service provider and employer of choice in Australia.
“Working in collaboration with clients and stakeholders, we use our scale and expertise to develop local strategies aligned with our shared commitment to sustain local communities.”
