Sodexo, a global food services and facilities management leader, has released its second annual sustainability and CSR report – “A Better Tomorrow: 2022 Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility Report.”  

The report covers key performance indicators and achievements during the fiscal year 2022 related to Sodexo’s primary areas of focus: carbon reduction, plant-based food, food waste, food insecurity, and diversity, equity, and inclusion.    

Consumers have changed their purchasing preferences to reflect considerations of social and environmental responsibility, and at Sodexo, we are happy to be a leader in these changes. This report presents our actions toward our nine Better Tomorrow commitments — for individuals, communities, and the planet, Sodexo North America’s Vice President of Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility Jessica Synkoski says. 

Some highlights from the report include:  

  • Since 2017, Sodexo has achieved a 37 percent reduction in Scope 1 and Scope 2 carbon emissions and a 25 percent reduction in Scope 3 carbon emissions.
  • Sodexo spent $550 million with small businesses and supported 3,411 diverse and small suppliers in FY22.
  • 49 percent of all Sodexo managers in the United States are female.
  • The Humane Society of the United States awarded Sodexo an “A” on their Protein Sustainability Scorecard, citing Sodexo’s collaboration with HSUS to increase plant-based menu options and assessment of carbon emissions related to supply chain purchases.
  • Sodexo sites using WasteWatch powered by Leanpath increased by nearly 45 percent, and sites utilizing the tool saw reduced food waste of 53 percent.
  • 4.9 million direct and indirect individuals benefited from the Stop Hunger Foundation, Sodexo’s nonprofit dedicated to eradicating food insecurity.
