SUSTAINABILITY

Our 5 pillars of sustainability

We have the ambition to contribute every day to a healthy lifestyle for our clients, guests, employees, and the communities we operate in. As part of the largest food and support service provider, Compass Group PLC, we have a responsibility to create value and a positive impact in the world. The lack of natural resources, the shift in demographics, the environmental impact, such as climate change, redefine the social expectations but as well as the way we understand and operate a business. Accordingly, our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy became a very important part of our company's sustainable growth.

Thinking new and innovative ways through which we can achieve what our clients expect, without negatively influence the future of the younger generation, is both a challenge and a reason to be proud. We are glad to be an element of change and influence other positive behaviors.

With clients and suppliers alongside, we transform our sustainability strategy into measurable actions. Our activities are based on five pillars: our people, sustainable & responsible purchasing, wellbeing, the environment, and society.

Sustainable sourcing

Purchasing

A responsible supply chain is important in our line of work, to deliver a high-quality food service. We are trying to reduce, as much as possible, the potential risks, and establish sustainable supplier relationships. For this reason, we are paying more attention to our suppliers' environmental policies, to make sure that they act responsibly towards their workforce and the communities in which they activate.

Our long-term strategy

Protecting and enhancing the wellbeing of our employees is important for us. Our openness and transparency, around internal processes and policies, ensure the safety and wellbeing not only for our people but as well for our clients and guests. We consider this to be an important part of our long-term strategy for sustainable business development.

The quest for sustainable growth will further continue for our company as we find new, innovative ways to achieve our goals. Until 2020 we will work on:

  • Promoting more a healthier lifestyle among our clients and customers. Nutrition is a big part of sustainable development, and we are committed to inform and guide our guests to adopt a more balanced lifestyle;
  • Constant improvement of our safety and security measures;
  • Maintain and develop even more our work environment: fair employment, great career opportunities and a decent workplace is our fundamental belief.

"Ensuring healthy lives and advocating wellbeing starts with a responsible, sustainable supply chain. Each day we are working together with our suppliers to find the right ways to do just that. Sustainable development does not happen overnight. However, given our extensive programmes for responsible sourcing, our passion and devotement we are optimistic that in the end, we can make a difference."
