Sodexo Confirms Carbon Emissions Reduction Commitment

September 24, 2019 Sodexo Confirms Carbon Emissions Reduction Commitment

Sodexo has confirmed its commitment to reduce its carbon emissions by 34% by 2025.

Sodexo’s goal has been reviewed and approved by the Science Based Targets initiative, a collaboration between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The company’s targets are in line with the Paris Agreement, which aims to limit the increase of global temperatures to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

“We will achieve our objective by focusing on our four environmental priority actions: preventing food waste, promoting plant-based meal options, sourcing responsibly through local and short supply chains, and, finally, helping our clients reduce their emissions through better energy and waste management,” said Denis Machuel, Sodexo CEO. “We’re proud to be part of the Science Based Targets initiative and the Business Ambition for 1.5°C call-to-action because there is an urgency to ensure we can sustain our collective quality of life despite a changing climate. Not only is this the right thing to do for the environment, but it also makes sense from a business point of view.”
