Gilchrist & Soames Receives EcoVadis Silver Medal in Recognition of Sustainability Achievement

SOMERSET, N.J., March 14, 2024 – Gilchrist & Soames, a Guest Worldwide company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sysco Corporation (NYSE:SYY), is pleased to announce it has been awarded a 2023 Silver Medal from EcoVadis, the world's most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings. This achievement recognizes Gilchrist & Soames’ commitment to environmental, social, and ethical practices, placing it among the top 25 percent of companies assessed by the platform.

The EcoVadis methodology is built – and continuously updated – on international sustainability standards (UNGC, GRI, ISO, and more), which they have used to identify 21 indicators across four main pillars: Environment, Labour and Human Rights, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement.

“We are honored to be recognized by EcoVadis,” said Michele de Bourbon, senior vice president and general manager at Gilchrist & Soames. “EcoVadis is one of the most trusted firms evaluating ethical business practices. This award validates the work we are doing and inspires us to continue our sustainability strategy and collaborate closely with our hospitality partners toward shared goals.”

Gilchrist & Soames is committed to promoting global sustainability initiatives through waste reduction, material reuse, and resource recycling. In fiscal year 2023, the company accomplished a significant milestone by eliminating the production of more than 168 million single-use bottles, which is equivalent to almost 2.1 million pounds of plastic that would have otherwise ended up in landfills or oceans. The company aims to set an example and inspire others to choose environmentally friendly options to help preserve the planet.
