Sodexo targets Net Zero

Sodexo UK&I has set an ambitious new target to be carbon neutral by 2025 and lays out its roadmap to net zero by 2045zero1121

In line with the Paris Agreement, the organisation previously set a goal of cutting its carbon footprint by 34% by 2025, however – having exceeded that target already this year – Sodexo has laid out its comprehensive roadmap to net zero and decarbonisation of its UK and Ireland business   
 Sodexo has announced a comprehensive roadmap to net zero and decarbonisation of the business in the UK and Ireland. The organisation, which provides a diverse range of services to large business and public sector clients, has been working with international experts, the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), to ensure that its net zero strategy is thorough, impactful and transparent.


Sodexo’s original Group target – validated by SBTi – to reduce carbon emissions* by 34% by 2025 (against a 2017 baseline) formed part of Sodexo’s Better Tomorrow commitment. Having already exceeded this, the UK&I business – which employs more than 30,000 people – will now set its sights on becoming Carbon Neutral*** in its direct operations by 2025.
The next step on Sodexo UK&I’s roadmap will be to reduce carbon emissions** across all three scopes by 55% by 2030. This includes every single component of the business’ operations across scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions.
The final step announced is a decarbonisation of the entire business, with 90% of all carbon emissions cut across all three scopes – accounting for suppliers and client sites, not just direct operations. This long-term target will be achieved no later than 2045.
Sean Haley, Chairman, Sodexo UK and Ireland 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.”
 Claire Atkins-Morris Director of Corporate Responsibility, Sodexo UK & Ireland said:
“Not all net zero commitments are created equal. This is a hugely complex topic, and it has been critically important to us throughout the process of creating this carbon reduction roadmap that we are committing to something that is truly meaningful, and that we are absolutely transparent in this.
