Sodexo launches sustainability plan

Sodexo has announced the launch of its ‘Better Tomorrow Plan’, which aims to consolidate Sodexo’s sustainability performance and provide a framework to measure the impact of the company’s actions worldwide.

Sodexo’s strategy is built around three pillars: ‘We are’ - which embraces values and ethics; ‘We do’ - which sets out 14 commitments to action on sustainability challenges; and ‘We engage’ - which recognises the dialogue required to translate commitments into action.

The 14 key commitments are spread across health, nutrition and wellness, local communities and the environment. Progress will be monitored with milestone assessments currently anticipated in 2012, 2015 and 2020.

For each of its commitments, Sodexo is developing phased plans and indicators to measure the degree of implementation and impact across the business.

Thomas Jelley, corporate citizenship manager for Sodexo UK and Ireland, said: “Our mission is to improve the quality of life for the people we serve and contribute to the economic, social and environmental development of the areas where we operate. Through this 10-year sustainable development strategy, we are committing to continuous improvement through a challenging but robust and structured approach.”
