Energy and Emissions

We will reduce our carbon footprint in all the countries where we operate and at clients’ sites by 2020.

Energy and Emissions

Why Does Sodexo Engage?

Global climate change is real and impacting people around the world, including the countries and communities where we have our business. Reducing emissions linked to climate change is important for our clients, consumers, and communities as well as for the environment.

How Does Sodexo Engage?

In 2009 Sodexo established our commitment to reduce carbon emissions in our operations and at client sites by 2020. Through our partnership with WWF (World Wildlife Fund) Sodexo created a new methodology and is now able to calculate the carbon embedded in operations at our client sites and our supply chain with confidence. This information, along with our accomplishments to date, have allowed us to set the target for a 34% reduction.

More commitments on natural resource consumption:

Water and Effluents

We are aware of and working to reduce the community and business impacts associated with water scarcity.

Organic Waste

The Earth produces enough food for everyone to have enough to eat, yet one third of the food produced for human consumption is never eaten and one in five people around the world are at risk of hunger on a daily basis.

Non-Organic Waste

When you compare the ecological footprint with the human development index it is very obvious that we have a development path which requires more resources than we have available to us.


Energy Savings Initiative

Sodexo offers include a device that fits over the thermostat probe of a food refrigeration unit, allowing the unit to respond to the temperature of stored food and not air, reducing energy consumption up to 30%. That reduces electricity bills and the CO2 emissions associated with power generation for our clients.
