WasteLESS Week

WasteLESS Week

WasteLESS Week is a five-day campaign that Sodexo teams run during October at client sites around the world. 

Play your part and help us achieve Sodexo's commitments to reducing waste - these commitments include:

  • by 2020, single use plastic bags and polystyrene foam items such as cups, lids and food containers will be phased out
  • by 2020 70% of waste will be recycled or reused, rising to 90% by 2025
  • by 2020, 60% of all sites will tackle food waste rising to 100% by 2025

We need your help

WasteLESS Week 2019 continued last year's efforts to reduce plastics within our business. This is in support of our Better Tomorrow commitment to remove single-use-plastics wherever possible by 2020. Sites could choose whether to run it between 14 - 18 October or 21 - 25 October.
