It also manages an International Clients' Programme that offers customers a centralised management approach. The group was founded in 1941 as Factory Canteens.
Compass Group ranks 3rd in the restaurants and food service segment, demonstrating leadership in this group. The company leads most of its peers in the governance and strategy and nutrition measurement areas, but achieves an average score when it comes to environment and social inclusion. In the governance and strategy measurement area, it is one of few companies demonstrating how and with which stakeholders it engages, while in nutrition, it is working towards making healthier foods available. The company has an opportunity to catch up to its peers by committing to environmental topics, such as setting a scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions target, and providing quantitative evidence of reducing plastic use. Like all of its peers, it can also improve in social inclusion by paying its workers a living wage.
