Area upkeep

At sea or on land, armies train in natural environments. These areas, which are constantly maintained and secured, are especially developed to limit pollution and ensure that soldiers’ lives are not in danger.

Area upkeep

Ensuring a safe environment

Forest and land upkeep, soil erosion, water quality, wild animal habitats and wildfire management must be taken into account in military exercises. The environment for troop training must be carefully supervised to avoid problems and risks. Our experts design environmental solutions specifically suited to military needs and are recognized for their know-how in extreme conditions.

The Australian Ministry of Defense acknowledged our expertise by entrusting Sodexo with the upkeep and management of sensitive areas such as the savanna, eucalyptus woods and marine environments adjacent to protected natural areas such as the Great Coral Reef.
