Sodexo's Better Tomorrow commitments that address these priorities and details our progress in 2011 and 2012.
"These accomplishments demonstrate the difference we can make when we work together. Some of our achievements include:
• Reducing Waste. Almost all sites are taking steps to reduce their environmental footprint, with more than half taking process improvement steps, such as changing to energy efficient equipment, implementing waste tracking systems, and moving to trayless dining programs.
• Promoting Wellness. Nearly 100 percent of our food services sites are implementing healthy food marketing programs, with one out of five choices meeting defined wellness criteria.
• Supporting Local Communities. Our volume of fairly traded products (e.g. coffee, tea) continues to increase, making an important difference in the communities that produce these items. There was more than a 250K pound increase in the volume of fairly traded coffee purchases between 2011 and 2012."
