At Sodexo, we recognise that we all have a part to play in reducing the impact of our every day activities, including what we eat, on the environment. That's why we are a proud supporter of Veganuary, the charity that encourages people to go vegan for January, and beyond! 

Supporting Veganuary is important to Sodexo because we’ve set some ambitious sustainability goals and we are committed to cutting carbon emissions by 34% by 2025, a science-based target aligned with the most ambitious goal of the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Our priority actions to reach this target include:

Our community of chefs are helping our customers to try more plant-based meals by creating delicious, healthy vegan recipes that will help people see how easy it is to switch to plant-based meals.

Here, some of our chefs have shared some of their favourite recipes for you to try at home during Veganuary and beyond.
