International Catering giant Sodexo pledged itself to make at least a third of its meals by the year2025. The company is worried about sustainability and because of these concerns, they are driving a push, which will apply to the UK and Ireland arm of its business. 

Last week, Sodexo announced a comprehensive roadmap to zero emissions. The company – which serves more than 100 million consumers daily worked with the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) to develop the plan. 

SBTi is an organization that helps guide companies with emission reduction goals to ensure they will help to limit the global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees. 

All around the world, Sodexo wants to reduce its carbon emissions by 34 percent before 2025, in comparison to a 2017 baseline. The company plans to decarbonize its entire UK and Ireland sector. 

Sodexo’s move away from animal products is appropriate, given that the animal-based food system is to blame for a significant amount of greenhouse gas emissions.

The company has already started exploring foods. Last year, Sodexo launched the JUST Egg and impossible in 1,500 locations too. 

As well as the company’s menu update, Sodexo is adopting a fleet of 100 percent hybrid and electric vehicles and will secure 100 percent renewable electricity by 2022.  In 2025, Sodexo will transition to 100 percent reusable, recyclable, and compostable packaging and aims to halve food waste by 2025. 

Sean Haley, Sodexo UK and IR chairman said:

“The commitments we make today are the culmination of an extraordinary amount of work from our world-class team of sustainability experts,” 

“Their unswerving dedication to developing, not just a set of targets, but a detailed action plan to achieve them, gives me absolute confidence in our future ability to not just meet but to exceed our net zero goals.

“This will enable us to continue to support and improve the communities in which we live, work and serve.”
