Aramark is an American food service, facilities and uniform services provider operating in the United States, Canada and 20 other countries. Founded as a one-man company selling peanuts in 1936, Aramark is today listed as one of the top 50 largest employers in the United States’ Fortune 500. With over 280,000 employees, the company provides food services to colleges and schools, hospitals, stadiums and arenas, conference centres and more, in addition to its activities in facility services and uniforms.
Aramark ranks ninth out of 24 in the restaurants and food service segment, slightly above average compared to its segment peers. The company still has a road ahead to become a segment leader, particularly in the governance and strategy and environment measurement areas. The company has an opportunity to disclose a process for prioritising its most relevant sustainability topics, as well as the outcomes of its stakeholder engagement activities. Aramark does not demonstrate any evidence of supporting practices crucial to sustainable agriculture, nor does it disclose that it engages with partners to reduce water withdrawals across its supply chain. Finally, the company has yet to commit to respecting, identifying and assessing human rights risks in its operations and supply chain.
