Fundamentals

Sodexo is the community of its clients, consumers, employees and shareholders. We recognise that the best way to respond to the expectations of all of our stakeholders is through steady growth. We also believe it is important that our work is meaningful to all who contribute to it and thus we remain faithful to our mission, our core values and the ethical principles that have guided us since 1966.

Loyalty, respect for people, transparency and business integrity are the ethical principles that guide us in all our day-to-day activities. They make Sodexo a respectful and respected company, led by a community of managers who share the same practices.
