Sodexo Drive Transition to Lower Transport Emissions
The regional support office of global Facilities Management leader Sodexo has opened its first Electric Vehicle charging station in Western Australia as part of its commitment to transition to 100% renewable energy and zero emission transport.
As part of its global drive, on December 10th, 2020, on the occasion of the 5th anniversary of the Paris Agreement, Sodexo, world leader in Quality of Life Services, has secured a place on the global environmental non-profit Carbon Disclosure Project’s ‘A list’ of climate change leaders’.
For the first time, Sodexo scored an “A” grade, joining 270 high-performing companies out of more than 9,500. This recognition demonstrates key progress on its carbon strategy which includes a target aligned with the most ambitious goal of the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, as well as concrete actions to cut emissions and transparency in reporting.
Sodexo has committed to switching to 100% renewable electricity by 2025 at its directly operated sites. Sodexo is also supporting clients in this respect, through Sodexo’s energy management service that generates significant savings and significant returns on investment.
Working towards transitioning its fleet of vehicles across the world to zero emission drive trains, this marks the first step in Western Australia to expand into its operations across the state.
