Best In Dow Jones Class

Dow Jones Sustainability Index

The Dow Jones Sustainability Index with leading scores in labour practices, climate strategy and stakeholder engagement has seen Sodexo rank best in class for a 15th consecutive year.

Sodexo had the highest score in their industry across a number of areas, including Labour Practices, Occupational Health and Safety, Local Impact of Business Operations, Supply Chain Management, Climate Strategy and Stakeholder Engagement.

Said Neil Barrett, Sodexo Group Senior Vice President, Corporate Responsibility: “The challenge gets harder each year to stay ahead of our peers, who are doing more and more in the sustainability space. This best-in-class distinction demonstrates that Sodexo’s efforts and performance continue to be recognised.  We are striving to anchor sustainability into all aspects of our business and everything we do.

"Today, our clients and markets look for commitment and visible performance improvements to help them achieve their own sustainability goals.

"Our environmental, social and governance performance, as rated by DJSI has become, more than ever, central to our business plans and decisions."

 

Goals

Sodexo is taking comprehensive actions towards a more sustainable future, by focusing on key areas which include preventing food waste, fostering inclusive growth with small and local business as well as advancing gender balance. Additional actions include providing healthy and sustainable meals through the promotion of plant based meal options and a responsible supply chain that includes solid progress on sustainable seafood, palm oil and animal welfare.

Sodexo also supports the fight against hunger through Stop Hunger, a global non-profit network.

 

Dow Jones Sustainability Index

Launched in 1999, the DJSI is the major standard for corporate sustainability. This year, over 3,500 of the world’s largest companies in both developed and emerging markets were invited to take part in SAM’s Corporate Sustainability Assessment, in which the most financially material environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors are assessed.
