Sodexo to Host Twitter Chat to Explore Responsible Sourcing, Local Community Impact, Integrated Reporting & More

SodexoOn Tuesday, December 10, 2013, Triple Pundit & CSRwire will host a Twitter chat with Sodexo’s Neil Barrett, group vice president, sustainable development; Tom Mackall, vice president, global labor relations as well as John Friedman, director, global corporate responsibility communications – acontributor to CSRwire’s commentary section Talkback and prolific social media communicator – for an inside look at the company’s commitment to corporate responsibility and sustainability.

Moderated by TriplePundit’s Nick Aster & CSRwire’s Editorial Director Aman Singh, Sodexo’s leaders will share their ambitions, answer questions about their commitments and seek feedback from the CR/sustainability community.

On the agenda:

  • The Value of Integrated Reporting: why was integrating Sodexo’s corporate responsibility into the Annual Report a natural fit?
  • Supply Chain Management: Sodexo works with more than 10,000 suppliers across 80 countries ranging from large multinational companies to family farms – how does it manage it all responsibly?
  • Responsible Sourcing: how does a company like Sodexo rise to the challenges presented by crossing global geographies, cultures and regulations while ensuring that everything they source meets their high standards (including quality, safety, sustainability and traceability, etc.)?
  • Employee Engagement: As a leading jobs provider with more than 420,000 employees, how does Sodexo consistently earn leading rankings in diversity and inclusion, provide career opportunities and develop its people?
  • Career opportunities – particularly our focus on youth employment (it is a current media story that this demographic has been particularly hard-hit by the global economic slowdown)
  • Development of our people
  • Rankings & Recognition: Sodexo was recently ranked top in its sector by the DJSI for the ninth consecutive year. What does it take to maintain leadership in the world of sustainability rankings?

Join us for a compelling conversation and an opportunity to learn and influence what’s around the bend for Sodexo.
