2013 – Sodexo Ireland is part of a Public Private Partnership (PPP) with ten schools on behalf of the Department of Education. The contract specifies that Sodexo should support the schools with energy management although it doesn’t prescribe how. Environmental practices are largely based on behaviours. In order to achieve meaningful outcomes, it is necessary to have all relevant stakeholders on board.
2013 – In 2008, the food price inflation impacted on Sodexo’s cost base significantly. In 2009, Sodexo launched the Better Tomorrow Plan, its sustainability strategy to 2020, which includes commitments to source produce locally and reduce carbon emissions. Sodexo Ireland started the initiative in 2009 in a bid to mitigate administrative costs and improve on procurement and environmental sustainability.
