CR Pillar 4: Environment

Pillar four

We constantly working on how best to improve the environmental performance of our operations.

As part of the largest food service and support services business in the world, Compass Group Ireland recognises that it can, and does, have a significant environmental impact as a consequence of activities associated with its operations, products and services.

Our suppliers and contractors play a critical role in our approach to minimising, and wherever appropriate, improving environmental impacts associated with our business.

At the majority of our client operating locations we are not directly responsible for the procurement of utilities, equipment, fuel, etc. However, we work closely with our clients to consider how best to improve the environmental performance of our operations and help them deliver their own environmental strategies.

Working with our clients we have been involved with a number of initiatives to:

  • Reduce the water and energy used in our principal office and production units 
  • Reduce the CO2 emissions of our vehicle fleets
    Reduce the waste packaging of our supply chain 
  • Reduce food miles by increasing the use of seasonally available products sourced from the relevant domestic markets 
  • Increase the number of sites with ISO 14001 accreditation.
