Independence ensured through founding family shareholding

Sodexo’s independence allows us to maintain a long-term vision and strategy and to guarantee the Company’s sustainability. The consistency of our commitment to build an international organization with strong management, to maintain sustainable relationships with all our stakeholders and to develop an integrated quality offering is a reflection of this vision

CSR is at the heart of our mission

Under the leadership of Chairwoman Sophie Bellon, the Board of Directors, composed of seven women and five men, determines the company's strategic direction in keeping with the long-term vision that exemplifies our governance. Six of the Board of Directors' twelve members have expertise in the fields of sustainable development, societal engagement, and human resources. Corporate social responsibility is a frequent topic of discussion.
