Sustainable Equipment and Supplies

We will source and promote sustainable equipment and supplies in all countries where we operate.

Sustainable Equipment

Why Does Sodexo Engage?

According to the 2010 WWF Living Planet Report, people used the equivalent of 1.5 planets in 2007 to support our activities, and under the business as usual scenario, by 2030 we will need the capacity of two Earths.

How Does Sodexo Engage?

At Sodexo we are not only the buyers of products, we also use them to deliver our services to our clients and consumers. Our employees have many opportunities to reduce environmental impacts, helping suppliers to reach the market with more sustainable products and our clients to reduce waste in all its forms.

Sodexo is increasing the proportion of sustainable products and equipment it purchases in designated priority categories such as paper disposables, cleaning products and office paper.
