Sodexo is the community of its clients, consumers, employees and shareholders. We recognize 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.


A foundation of loyalty, shared by Sodexo with its clients, employees and shareholders, based on honest, open relations. Loyalty is one of the cornerstones of operations in our organization.

Respect for people

Humanity is at the heart of our business. Sodexo is committed to providing equal opportunities, regardless of race, origin, age, gender, beliefs, religion or lifestyle choices. Improving quality of life means according each person respect, dignity and consideration.


This is one of Sodexo’s major principles and a constant with all stakeholders: clients, consumers, employees, shareholders and the general public.

Business integrity

We do not tolerate any practice that is not born of honesty, integrity and fairness, anywhere in the world where we do business. We clearly communicate our position to our clients, suppliers and employees and expect them to share this rejection of corrupt and unfair practices. In November 2006, the Board of Directors approved a code proposed by the Group’s Executive Committee entitled “Principles of Business Integrity.” The code formally expresses Sodexo’s beliefs and practices in the area of business ethics, so that every employee understands and shares the Group’s commitment to business integrity.


Sodexo commits to the highest standards of business integrity.

We Are, We Do & We Engage: The basis of our strategy for Corporate responsibility.
