Sodexo : Sodexo Leads Dow Jones Sustainability Index for 11 straight years

Issy-les-Moulineaux, September 29, 2015 -
Sodexo, world leader in Quality of Life Services, is once again the top rated
company in its sector on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) giving the
Group 11 consecutive years of recognition in sustainability, and the number
one consumer services company for the second year in a row. DJSI is the
longest-running global sustainability benchmark worldwide and the key
reference point in sustainability investing for investors and companies
alike. The annual DJSI review is based on a thorough analysis of corporate
economic, environmental and social performance, assessing issues such as
corporate governance, risk management, climate strategy, environmental
policy/management systems, supply chain standards and labor practices.

DJSI noted that Sodexo, while already the leader, had shown significant
increases, particularly in the areas of corporate citizenship and
philanthropy and for its environmental efforts. Last year, for example, the
company released an ambitious, industry-leading effort that will engage its
suppliers, clients and customers (in addition to its own operations) to
reduce carbon emissions 34% by 2020.

In addition DJSI also highlighted Sodexo's exemplary supply chain management
and excellent labor indicators:

* 97 percent of new employees are hired from the local community
* Women form 43% of middle management and 38% of the Board of Directors.
* With more than 50 million people relying on the company for their
nutritional needs, it is noteworthy that the company has committed to
promoting health and wellness solutions in all of the 80 countries in which
it operates.

Sodexo has been a member of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) World
and DJSI Europe (formerly STOXX) since 2005. S&P Dow Jones Indices works in
partnership with RobecoSAM, the investment specialist focused exclusively on
Sustainability Investing that tracks the performance of the leading
sustainability-driven companies worldwide.
