We will ensure compliance with a Global Sustainable Supply Chain Code of Conduct in all the countries where we operate by 2015.
Why Does Sodexo Engage?
Our challenge is to ensure that all the products and services we source are produced according to widely accepted social, environmental and ethical standards.
How Does Sodexo Engage?
All of Sodexo's more than 10,000 suppliers are required to pledge to conduct business with the highest ethical, social and environmental practices as defined by our Sodexo Supplier Code of Conduct ("Code") in order to be able to have a contract with us.
The Code sets forth Sodexo's expectations of suppliers, vendors, contractors and others with whom Sodexo conducts business (collectively referred to as "Suppliers") with respect to sound and responsible ethical, social and environmental practices.
It was first issued in 2008 and is revised every three years.
This 3 year revision is a necessary part of keeping the Code aligned with our internal policies as well as the requirements of our external stakeholders.
In addition, Suppliers are required communicate the principles of the Code throughout their own supply chain.
