Aramark Sets 2025 Goals
Aramark, a provider of food, facilities, and uniform services, will pursue a goal of reducing GHG emissions in the U.S. by 15% by 2025 from its 2019 baseline, purchasing goods and services in a responsible and sustainable manner, reducing food waste in the U.S. by 50% by 2030, and minimizing its reliance on single-use plastics.
Details were provided in its 2022 Be Well. Do Well. Progress Report, an update to its global environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) performance.
Aramark is pursuing a path to net zero GHG emissions and is sourcing sustainably, minimizing food waste, embedding circularity, operating efficiently, and executing against its GHG reduction goal.
In October 2022, the company submitted our enterprise-wide near-term and net-zero science-based targets (SBTs) to the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) for validation.
“The 2022 Be Well. Do Well. Progress Report is the latest chapter documenting our sustainability journey. This work is fundamental to our mission and how we do business, and we are very proud of our progress,” said John Zillmer, Aramark’s CEO in a statement.
