Think­ing glob­ally, act­ing lo­cally

The Australian Mining Review - - RIO TINTO IRON ORE -

SODEXO is a lead­ing fa­cil­i­ties man­age­ment or­gan­i­sa­tion ded­i­cated to de­liv­er­ing qual­ity of life services in more than 80 coun­tries.

Lever­ag­ing best prac­tices and com­mit­ment from Sodexo op­er­a­tions around the world, the com­pany is driven by an am­bi­tious cor­po­rate re­spon­si­bil­ity plan called Bet­ter To­mor­row 2025, ad­dress­ing is­sues aligned with the UN Sus­tain­abil­ity De­vel­op­ment Goals.

Un­der­pin­ning Sodexo’s global pres­ence and Bet­ter To­mor­row 2025 com­mit­ments is a vast net­work of sup­pli­ers, part­ners and ini­tia­tives that put sus­tain­abil­ity com­mit­ments into ac­tion on the ground, at ev­ery one of their sites.

Sodexo’s Part­ner In­clu­sion pro­gram, Abo­rig­i­nal busi­ness in­cu­ba­tion, as well as VTEC train­ing and re­gional em­ploy­ment are just some of the lo­calised ac­tiv­i­ties im­ple­mented through the Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Ac­tion Plan El­e­vate com­pany in Aus­tralia.

“Qual­ity of Life is at the core of what we do and we seek to max­imise our pos­i­tive im­pact through our re­la­tion­ships with our clients, con­sumers, sup­pli­ers and lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties in which we op­er­ate,” Sodexo Aus­tralia di­rec­tor in­te­grated fa­cil­i­ties man­age­ment ( IFMS) Dar­ren Hed­ley said.

“We have de­vel­oped our ap­proach to cor­po­rate re­spon­si­bil­ity by look­ing not only at the role we play as a large global or­gan­i­sa­tion, but also the real im­pact we have as a ser­vice provider and em­ployer of choice in Aus­tralia.

“Work­ing in col­laboration with clients and stake­hold­ers, we use our scale and ex­per­tise to develop lo­cal strate­gies aligned with our shared com­mit­ment to sus­tain lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.”
