Fundamentals

Our positioning in the services industry is original and unique. It is what makes our brand different. In combining the diverse talents of our teams, Sodexo is the only company to integrate a complete offer of innovative services, based on over 100 professions.

Loyalty, respect for people, transparency and business integrity are the ethical principles that guide us in all our day-to-day activities. They make Sodexo a respectful and respected company, led by a community of managers who share the same practices.

Loyalty

A foundation of loyalty, shared by Sodexo with its clients, employees and shareholders, based on honest, open relations. Loyalty is one of the cornerstones of operations in our organization.

Respect for people

Humanity is at the heart of our business. Sodexo is committed to providing equal opportunities, regardless of race, origin, age, gender, beliefs, religion or lifestyle choices. Improving quality of life means according each person respect, dignity and consideration.

Transparency

This is one of Sodexo’s major principles and a constant with all stakeholders: clients, consumers, employees, shareholders and the general public.

Business integrity

We do not tolerate any practice that is not born of honesty, integrity and fairness, anywhere in the world where we do business. We clearly communicate our position to our clients, suppliers and employees and expect them to share this rejection of corrupt and unfair practices. In November 2006, the Board of Directors approved a code proposed by the Group’s Executive Committee entitled “Principles of Business Integrity.” The code formally expresses Sodexo’s beliefs and practices in the area of business ethics, so that every employee understands and shares the Group’s commitment to business integrity.
