    Creating a better world for generations to come.

    Our purpose revolves around our mission to enrich and nourish lives: We strive to create a better world by considering the company’s environmental, economic, social and ethical dimensions.

    Be Well. Do Well. is Aramark’s sustainability plan. It sums up our goal to make a positive impact on people and planet over the next five years. 

    Our Strategy

    Be Well. Do Well. accelerates our sustainability efforts and aligns with our vision for our future: improving the wellbeing of people, and reducing our greenhouse gas emissions by 2025. These goals convey our priorities and ambitions, focusing our efforts and inspiring our organization.

    Our sustainability plan starts with people. People are at the center of everything we do and so we’re focused on the wellbeing of our employees and consumers, the people in the communities where we live and work, as well as the people in our supply chain. We also focus on the wellbeing of our planet by minimizing environmental impact across all of our operations, from the foods we serve and facilities we operate to the vehicles we drive.

    Each goal is supported by four priorities, which align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We have identified key performance indicators and internal targets tied to our business objectives to drive outcomes against those priorities.

    Our People priorities are to engage employees, empower healthy consumers, build local communities and source ethically and inclusively.
    Our Planet priorities are to source responsibly, operate efficiently, minimize food waste and reduce packaging.

    Sustainability Begins With Integrity

    Our commitment to sustainability, to doing the right thing always, begins with integrity. We are committed to conducting business according to the highest ethical standards and in compliance with the law. Our Business Conduct Policy (BCP) details our commitment to operating ethically and transparently. It explains the basic rules and principles that apply to every Aramark team member. Annual training addresses anti-corruption, human rights and the workplace environment, accurate books and records, privacy and confidentiality, and safety, as well as how to report potential BCP violations. There are numerous ways to report a possible violation of the Business Conduct Policy. The Aramark Hotline is operated by a third-party company, and translation services are available. Reports can be made anonymously, and Aramark also prohibits retaliation against persons who report a suspected violation in good faith.

    Continuous Improvement

    On our journey of continuous improvement, we are committed to expanding public reporting on our sustainability plan, building greater awareness among our employees, consumers, clients, partners and investors. We’re proud of our efforts and are excited about implementing our five-year plan.

    Making a positive impact on people

    People are at the cornerstone of everything we do, from running our business and engaging our employees, to empowering healthy consumers, building local communities, and sourcing in an ethical and inclusive way. We are proud of our long-standing commitment to enable the wellbeing of all the people we connect to, and we’re committed to doing even more.

    Our goal is to provide access to opportunities – opportunities for our employees, consumers, communities and people in our supply chain. Building on our current work, we continue to help people to develop careers and livelihoods; access, choose and prepare healthy food; and grow communities, businesses and local economies.

    Moreover, we focus on safety every step of the way: in the food we serve, the places we work, and in our daily operations. It’s our responsibility to maintain the highest levels of safety for our own employees, as well as our customers and our clients.

    Making a positive impact on the planet 


    When it comes to reducing our environmental impact, we’re focusing on addressing climate change. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is our top priority and something we can impact in all of our businesses, through the foods we serve to the vehicles we drive.

    This effort builds on our current practices to reduce emissions that range from sourcing responsibly and operating efficiently, to minimizing food waste and reducing packaging. Now we’re taking an even more comprehensive approach. We’re conducting an emissions inventory, identifying specific actions to drive our reduction of carbon emissions, and working toward improving our public reporting.

    We’re also focused on increasing our climate-healthy plant-forward menu options through our Healthy for Life initiative®. And we’re also proud to announce our No-Deforestation Policy.

    SOURCE RESPONSIBLY

    Minimizing the impact to people, animals and the environment through responsible purchasing.

    OPERATE EFFICIENTLY

    Working to conserve water and energy and improve operations for a healthier planet.

    MINIMIZE FOOD WASTE

    Committing to reducing food loss and waste 50% by 2030 across operations.

    REDUCE PACKAGING
