Sodexo scoops corporate responsibility award

Sodexo has won the top corporate responsibility award in the inaugural year of the Footprint Awards. Additionally, Tamsin Gane, Sodexo UK & Ireland's sustainable procurement manager, was runner-up in the Special Achievement Award category. Sodexo UK & Ireland received the award for Corporate Social & Environmental Responsibility at a ceremony at the Royal Institute of British Architects in London.

Judges were particularly impressed by Sodexo's ‘Better Tomorrow Plan’ - its sustainability strategy to 2020 - which was praised for being ‘a far reaching programme whose objective is to support the sustainability aims of employees, clients, customers and suppliers’.

Thomas Jelley, corporate citizenship manager, Sodexo, who received the award on behalf of the company, said: "We are delighted to receive the Footprint Award for Corporate Social & Environmental Responsibility in the first year of the Footprint Awards. It is a further endorsement of Sodexo's Better Tomorrow Plan and the efforts of colleagues across the UK and Ireland who have helped to bring it to life."
