Our Planet Promise is Compass Group’s global commitment to a sustainable future for all. It encompasses our values as an ethical, sustainable and inclusive business; the commitments we make to our people, our clients and our suppliers; and our mission to have a positive impact on the world through sourcing responsibly, enriching lives and collaborating for global change.


In the last year, we have taken decisive steps to accelerate and scale the urgent actions needed to help tackle the climate emergency. We’ve also served more plant-forward meals than ever before, while doubling down on our commitments to halve food waste and reduce and recycle packaging, and we’ve extended our environmental actions into our supply chains through sustainable sourcing.

Climate Net Zero 2050

The international food industry has a major role to play in reaching Net Zero. That’s why we have announced a commitment to reach Climate Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Plant Forward Meals

Plant Forward Meals

The choices we make about our diet can have a big impact on the planet. We are helping to rebalance menus celebrating fruits, vegetables and other plants in our plant forward offerings.

Reducing Food Waste

A third of all food produced globally is wasted every year. We’re making good use of technology to understand our food waste footprint and are working in partnership to halve it by 2030.

Reusable Solutions

By shifting our mindset, Compass Group is driving a circular approach to promote the reuse of materials. It is a transition which is underpinned by circular economy principles, such as 'eliminate' and 'recirculate'.

Responsible Sourcing

Procurement with purpose is about making joint commitments alongside our peers, and backing them by rigorous policies, processes and standards that promote the fair treatment of people and animals, as well as sustainable resource use and agricultural practices.
