Sodexo has been named 2009 global Supersector Leader for the travel and leisure sector by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI).

The food and facilities management firm received an overall score of 86% in an assessment of its economic, social and environmental performance by the ratings agency SAM (Sustainable Asset Management). The average score for companies within this sector was 56%.

The contract caterer also achieved 94% for economic performance, 91% for environmental performance, and 79% for social performance.

Sodexo CEO, Michel Landel, said: "We are proud to be included again among global companies that combine economic performance and civic responsibility.

"This recognition reflects the daily efforts of our teams throughout the world and reinforces our commitment to corporate citizenship as a strategic priority."

In addition, Sodexo was the leader for its sector, "REX Hotels, Restaurants, Bars & Recreational Services," for both the DJSI World and DJSI STOXX indices.

The DJSI identifies companies that combine economic and financial performance with a commitment to sustainable development, revising its criteria each year to reflect the changing dynamics within companies.
