Compass Group Australia Announce Net Zero Commitment

Compass Group, 28 Villages’ parent company, makes global commitment to reach Climate Net Zero by 2050.

Compass Group is the world’s largest food services group operating in 45 countries. They recently announced a commitment to reach Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions across its global operations and value chain by 2050.

The Group’s Net Zero target makes Compass the first international company in the contract catering industry to announce a global commitment to a 2050 net zero emissions economy. It includes ambitious reduction targets over the next decade which have been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), and a further commitment to be carbon neutral worldwide in its own operations by 2030.

The Group will also use its scale and global reach to influence and work collaboratively with governments, suppliers, clients and industry associates to reduce their direct greenhouse gas emissions and help create a more sustainable global food system.

This announcement follows the commitment made earlier this year by the Group’s UK & Ireland business to deliver Climate Net Zero across its operations by 2030. Compass intends to leverage the experience of early adopter countries such as the UK to share best practice across the Group and drive accelerated transformation towards its global Net Zero goal.
