Sodexo is the only company in its sector to be A scored in CDP climate ranking and joins 346 top-rated companies out of 21,000 companies scored, representing two thirds of the global market capitalisation.
This recognition by CDP, a global non-profit organisation holding the largest environmental database in the world, acknowledges the progress achieved by Sodexo on its climate ambition, both in performance and transparency.
In line with its ambition to be the global leader in sustainable food and valued experiences and given the climate emergency, Sodexo is accelerating its actions to reduce its climate impact.
This scoring recognises Sodexo’s ambitious trajectory and the active implication of its employees to achieve its SBTi approved Net Zero target by 2040. The integration of the most recent standards and tools to rigorously track performance and communicate transparently on climate is helping Sodexo to drive positive change across its value chain.
Sodexo’s climate ambition is based on four key levers identified to drastically reduce carbon emissions:
- Products: by promoting sustainable farming practices, supporting supplier efforts to reduce their carbon emissions and by continuing to develop local sourcing and short supply chains.
- Cooking: by designing new recipes to ensure that 70 per cent of its main dishes are labelled “low-carbon” by 2030 (0.9 kg CO2e or less).
- Energy: by implementing less energy-intensive preparation methods and by achieving the 100 per cent renewable electricity in its direct operations by 2025.
- Waste: by massively deploying the WasteWatch programme, Sodexo’s food waste prevention programme.
Anna Notarianni, Sodexo Group Chief Impact Officer said: “We are pleased to be recognised by CDP for our sustainable commitment on climate. This recognition highlights the daily work of our local and global teams alongside our clients and suppliers. I am convinced that our actions and our vision for the future will allow us to achieve our ambitious objectives. Engaging with all our stakeholders will enables us to have a positive impact on our entire value chain, and to be the global leader in sustainable food.”
CDP scores are widely used to drive investment and procurement decisions towards a zero carbon, sustainable and resilient economy.
