WasteLESS Week 2017

Preparing for WasteLESS week 2017

From 16 - 20 October, Sodexo is holding its annual WasteLESS Week, and we would like to invite you to take part.


Waste is one of our biggest collective challenges. We believe that less waste means more quality of life and this is why reducing waste is one of our key Better Tomorrow 2025 commitments. So for this year’s WasteLESS Week, we are running two competitions in parallel:

Best WasteLESS Site

This competition is  to recognise best site-wide effort.  Choose a resource used on site; whether this is food waste, energy or water usage, paper or something else, and start measuring on 18 September over a four-week period before WasteLESS Week.

Then, during WasteLESS Week carry out  your ideas  to reduce your chosen resource, eg. food waste, energy or water usage, and record the difference.

The site that makes the biggest impact, whether through waste reduction, team engagement or best initiative will win a sustainable meal for the team.  Download the WasteLESS Week Monitoring Spreadsheet to start measuring.

Re-purposing Waste Photo Competition:

This competition is designed to recognise our real waste warriors. Whether turning old cords into Bob Marley, making an old piano into outdoor fountain, or simply re-using your leftover potato, we would love to hear your ideas for re-purposing waste. Taking part is really easy – just take a photo of your creation and share it with us on Twitter and Facebook using #WasteLESSWeek. The most creative idea will win a water powered shower radio.

Whatever you decide to do, please raise awareness of WasteLESS Week with your teams, clients and consumers and highlight that everyone has a part to play in reducing waste. For and questions or more information on tools and ideas please contact the CR Team on CorporateResponsibility.UKandIE@sodexo.com
