Food is at the heart of many environmental issues

It’s a significant contributor to climate change and responsible for almost 60% of global biodiversity loss.

But in our day to day lives it’s easy to play our part in fighting this. As a general rule, growing plant-based ingredients creates much lower greenhouse gas emissions than producing meat and dairy, so eating plant-based meals more often will help you reduce your carbon footprint and join the #FightForYourWorld.

Funded through our partnership with Sodexo, WWF’s Finer Diner introduces tasty alternatives to your favourite treat meals, with a plant-based twist.

By making small changes to your diet, like moderating your consumption of meat and dairy and eating a wider variety of plant-based ingredients you can help cut greenhouse gas emissions from the food we eat by 30% by 2030.

Why Sodexo?

Sodexo is one of the world’s largest contract caterers with operations in over 80 countries across the globe. In the UK alone, Sodexo serves a million meals a day in places like schools, universities, hospitals, prisons and workplace canteens.

We've been working globally with Sodexo since 2010 to reduce the impact of their business on the environment. In the UK, we are reducing the environmental impact of the meals they serve by creating more sustainable menu choices. By applying WWF’s Livewell principles for a sustainable diet and combining them with Sodexo’s commitments under its Better Tomorrow ethos, we’re working to embed more sustainable meals in their menu offerings, and helping their customers make more planet friendly choices.

Sodexo is proud to be the catering partner to a number of universities in the UK and Ireland. With Generation Z increasingly likely to embrace a plant-based diet, Sodexo’s university business is the perfect place to launch our Finer Diner to help encourage students to choose plant-based meals more often.
