Our social value strategy

Our approach to social value focuses on four impact pathways, encompassing all aspects of our business:

Social Value - People

Our people

We create employment opportunities through apprenticeships and provide employees with access to services that support their health and wellbeing needs.  Our strategy promotes social mobility across our business, and supports groups who need help to secure suitable employment that could kickstart their career, helping them take the first step to long-term rehabilitation.

Our planet

Our planet

We all have a responsibility to protect our planet, so we have implemented a strategy to reduce, recover and repurpose waste. These activities will support our journey to Net Zero by 2040, not only at Sodexo but in partnership with our clients and supply chain. We're also increasing the take up of sustainable diet options and removing unrecylable plastics.

Our places

We're committed to contribute to the economic, social and environmental development of the cities, regions and countries in which we work. We recognise that there is economic disparity across our communities and are fully committed to supporting the 'levelling-up' agenda. Our employees are also enabled to support local fundraising and volunteering activity in the community.
