Corporate Responsibility Report 2013
The Group`s strategy oetermines our corporate responsibility ,CR, approach ano progressively, we are improving the
business operating mooel to rellect more sustainable practices. CR is well establisheo within our overall strategy ol
sustaineo growth whilst provioing the highest quality ol service to our customers.
Adopting responsible practices across our global operations, with particular focus on four core areas (Our people, Wellbeing, Responsible sourcing and the
Environment), places CR at the heart of our business practices and customer proposition.
Our aim is to continuously improve the positive contribution we make through the delivery of our services by the responsible use of resources, the health and
wellbeing of our consumers and employees and the employment opportunities that we create in local communities. As a result, Compass is more cost
efficient with a strong corporate reputation, which benefits all our stakeholders.
We operate in around 50 geographically diverse markets, each with different CR opportunities and challenges. To promote positive change in our
performance across these markets, we are progressively embedding CR practices throughout the Group using our Small Steps, Big Difference framework,
which clearly defines the steps we wish our businesses to implement along their CR journey. A number of proven best practice initiatives from around the
Group underpin our approach.
Over the past year, we have made good progress against our CR commitments with additional focus on: supply chain assurance; reporting on
environmental performance and employee diversity; and human rights.
We have calculated our GHG emissions for 10 baseline countries since 2008. Ìn 2010 we added a further 10 countries to the reporting (in total representing
93% of Group revenue). Compared to 2012, emissions for 10 baseline countries decreased by 2%, and including the additional countries by 3%.

relationship with our employees on respect for the dignity of the individual and seek to create a positive, open working environment wherever we operate. As
at 30 September 2013, 225,728 of our global workforce of 506,699 employees were male and 280,971 female. Of these, 723 were senior managers (541

Chairman`s statement
Thanks to the oeoication ol our people, we have grown stronger as a company, oelivering consistent results ano creating
substantial value lor our shareholoers.
Ì am delighted to report, in what is my last Chairman's statement for Compass, another successful year in which we have grown revenue and operating
profit, delivering a margin of over 7% for the first time. This is a remarkable achievement and Ì am immensely proud of the hard work and commitment
shown by my colleagues around the Group.
Since Ì joined Compass in 2005, we have faced some extraordinary challenges. We first rebuilt the foundations of the business on a stronger and more
sustainable footing, putting the creation of shareholder value as our priority. We implemented new governance processes and took positive action to rebuild
our reputation. We exited non-core businesses and countries to bring a greater focus and discipline to our growth. Our management team, led by Group
Chief Executive Richard Cousins, put in place a consistent, and now proven, strategy with food at our core allied to a growing support services business,
recognising the attractive structural growth opportunities of each. Our business model is robust. The Management and Performance (MAP) framework
introduced process and efficiency and continues to be a key element of our success. Over the years, we have faced significant economic challenges but,
thanks in large part to the dedication of our people, we have grown stronger as a company, delivering consistent results and creating substantial value for
our Shareholders. As Ì prepare to hand over the Chairmanship to my successor, Paul Walsh, Ì am confident that Ì am leaving the business in very good
shape.

Corporate responsibility underpins our business, driving our decisions and enabling us to achieve our strategic goals in a responsible and sustainable way.
The Board is fully committed to the integration of corporate responsibility across the Group and a focus on broader social and environmental issues to
benefit the communities in which we operate. Our teams around the Group work hard to continuously enhance the positive contribution we make. We focus
on the responsible use of resources, the health and wellbeing of our consumers and on creating opportunities for greater engagement with local
communities.
Since we started our corporate responsibility journey in 2007, we have seen continued improvement in our performance. Details of our progress can be
found in the Performance section of this Report.
Ì am proud of the significant value we have created for our Shareholders. Since 2005, Compass has delivered a total return of 455% to our Shareholders,
well above the 66% for the FTSE 100 as a whole.
We remain committed to a progressive dividend policy and this year the Board is proposing a final dividend of 16.0 pence for payment on 24 February 2014.
This brings our total dividend for 2013 to 24.0 pence, a year on year increase of 12.7%.
Ìn addition to this, the confidence we have in our future performance and our current investment requirements mean we are able to drive greater efficiency
into the balance sheet with a further share buyback of £500 million, which we expect to complete in the 2014 calendar year. Separately, the current £400
million share buyback programme remains on track to complete before the 2013 calendar year end.
During the year, James Crosby stepped down from the Board and Sir Ìan Robinson was appointed both Senior Ìndependent Director and Chairman of the
Remuneration Committee. Sir Ìan has been a Non-Executive Director of Compass since December 2006 and has brought a wealth of experience to the
Board.
Ì am also delighted to welcome Paul Walsh to the Group as my successor. Paul will join as a Non-Executive Director from 1 January 2014 and will become
Non-Executive Chairman at the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting on 6 February 2014.
Paul has had an extensive career, most recently as Chief Executive Officer of Diageo plc. His experience leading one of the UK's largest international
companies through a period of significant global expansion makes him an excellent addition to our Board and Ì wish him every success in his role as
Chairman of Compass.
Our Board is supported by the Group's Executive Board, led by our Group Chief Executive Richard Cousins and by strong leadership teams across our
geographies. We have worked hard to put in place effective succession and development programmes and the continued strong results we have achieved
are testament to these efforts.
Over the years Ì have spent as Chairman of Compass, it has been my privilege to meet many of our people across the world. Ì have been consistently
impressed by the quality and commitment of our teams. Our people are a key element of our formula for success and, on behalf of the Board, Ì would like to
thank them for their continued dedication and add my personal thanks for what we have achieved together.
Compass has had a good year, delivering solid organic revenue growth and a 20 basis point increase in the Group operating margin, which is now over 7%
for the first time. North America and Fast Growing & Emerging, which account for two thirds of Group revenue, have grown strongly and our operating
margin in North America has remained above 8%. Looking ahead to next year, the pipeline of new contracts is encouraging and we expect to see further
good performances in these regions. We anticipate economic conditions in Europe & Japan will remain challenging. However, the actions we are taking give
us confidence in another year of delivery.
We remain very positive about the opportunities to grow the business and we are well placed to capitalise on the significant structural growth potential in
both food and support services globally. We also expect to deliver further cost efficiencies which will help to support future growth and enable us to make
further progress in the operating margin. As a result, we remain confident in our ability to continue to create significant value for our Shareholders.

We have a wioe range ol stakeholoers who inlluence or are allecteo by our oay to oay business, ano have varying neeos ano
expectations. We recognise the importance ol listening to leeoback ano as such we regularly engage with our stakeholoers
to better unoerstano their views on a specilic topic.
Our stakeholders include:
94% = 2013 gIobaI cIient retention rate
Measuring client and consumer satisfaction is key to assessing how well we are performing across our business and where we can improve our service, as
well as identifying new business and growth opportunities. We do this through client interviews, consumer satisfaction questionnaires and mystery shopper
programmes.
66% = 2013 empIoyee engagement rate
We employ over 500,000 people in around 50 countries. As a service organisation, our success is linked to having an engaged workforce and giving people
the opportunity to voice their opinion on the business, our processes and practices. Over the last five years, we have conducted a number of Your Voice
employee surveys to help us better understand how we can maximise engagement and to receive feedback direct from our 'frontline' teams.
We seek to establish mutually beneficial relationships with all our suppliers, and encourage them to match our high standards in respect of quality, food
safety, working conditions, trading practices, health and safety and environmental protection. We work closely with them to keep them up to date with the
changing needs and scope of our business, nurturing honest business relationships including dealing with any concerns that may arise in an open manner.
As an example, we organise regular supplier conferences to keep our suppliers up to date with our business strategy, logistics requirements and evolving
consumer preferences. Such events also provide an opportunity for suppliers to voice their opinion on our business and identify potential areas for
improvement and growth.
Our success in the marketplace is built upon the trust and confidence of those who invest in us, and we are dedicated to protecting their long term interests.
Each year, at our Annual General Meeting we update our shareholders on business strategy and performance, as well as provide an opportunity for them to
ask questions of our senior leadership team. Our investor relations team is easily accessible to shareholders by telephone and email and will respond to any
questions or requests for information.
Ìn each of our local markets, we engage with government agencies and regulators to feed back our views on issues that may affect our business and help
shape policy that is relevant and practicable to implement in our operations.
As a large organisation operating in around 50 countries, we receive many requests from NGOs to support them in their activities and provide a business
insight into their research programmes. Through our engagement, in 2013 we have particularly benefited from expert advice and guidance in the areas of
environmental performance, sustainable supply chain initiatives and human rights.

Time Ìnjury Rate (LTÌR) and Food Safety Ìncident Rate (FSÌR) in a consistent way. All of our countries now report their health and safety and food safety
performance in a consistent format every month.
All management and Board meetings throughout the Group feature a health and safety update as one of their top agenda items. The Corporate
Responsibility Committee reviews the HSE policies annually to ensure that they continue to reflect our aims and aspirations, and meet with current
legislation.
Supporting the Board is our global HSE Forum, made up of technical specialists from around the Compass globe. The Forum is responsible for defining
policies, setting standards, measuring compliance and sharing best practice across the Group.
To ensure best practice, in 2007 we developed a set of policies, minimum operating standards and behaviours, which have been steadily embedded across
our business. Our standards are based on the strictest regulatory requirements and industry best practice. We assess each country on its progress against
the Group HSE standards.

We are always looking into ways that can improve our colleagues`
oaily lives ano help them to oo their oay to oay outies salely. In
particular, our support services colleagues who perlorm various
cleaning activities, can take on some ol the most physically
oemanoing tasks.
The regular use of a vacuum is one such task, and we are excited to have
commenced the development and testing of robotic vacuums in our Danish
operations, in partnership with our technology expert. The 'robots' are not only safe
to use, but are fully rechargeable meaning energy costs are also reduced.
So far, they have been a great success and because they are a safer, more efficient
tool, this alternative method of vacuuming is also producing some positive health
benefits for our employees.
Health ano salety initiatives are being oevelopeo all across our
business, creating awareness amongst our employees in the
importance ol taking care not just ol themselves, but also ol others.
An approach taken by our team in Mexico is the introduction of safety videos as part
of the 'Cuídate Cuídame' campaign. The videos feature real-life employees to
motivate their colleagues and raise awareness of their safety responsibilities. The
videos merge family and professional life, demonstrating how we can all prevent
accidents happening not just to our colleagues, but also to our friends and families.
We can all make the effort to put safety first, enjoy a safer workplace, and go home
safely to the people we love at the end of the day.

some of the world's most challenging environments. Ìmpressive performances
include:
Compared to our 2008 baseline performance, we have improved our Lost Time
Ìnjury Rate (LTÌR) by 38%.
These are clear indications of our global commitment to 'Safety First in Everything
We Do', enabling us to continue the journey towards our ultimate goal of incident free
operations.
Algeria ÷ 35 months being Lost Time Ìnjury-free = 29 million incident-free man
hours
Canada ÷ 1 million incident-free man hours at Exxon Mobil

continental Europe
Ìndia ÷ 1.5 million incident-free man hours at DuPont in Hyderabad

with 'return to work' procedures and support.
Since the programme was introduced, employee absence has reduced by 4,000
days!

pressure to retain all the taste and goodness of the ingredients.
We are delighted to be working with the Royal Voluntary Service and a local council
to bring Steamplicity to people in their homes through Meals on Wheels. Our
partnership puts the customer at the heart of the dining experience and we're excited
to be delivering great choice and quality, fresh food to a vulnerable section of the
community.

We are proud to be the first catering company to enter into a partnership with AshOil
and it is an excellent example of our industry-leading environmental initiatives and
Ìndigenous engagement strategies.
This partnership will see 100% of our used cooking oil from sites in Western Australia
÷ more than 200,000 litres a year ÷ recycled into biodiesel fuel.
A global mining company working in the Pilbara uses the biodiesel for drilling and
blasting operations at its mine and this activity prevents the oil from being sent to
landfill or other disposal, and has resulted in the equivalent of 500 tonnes of CO
being offset. By guaranteeing AshOil exclusive access to our used cooking oil every
year, ESS Australia is also helping to secure AshOil's continual growth and path to
profitability. The agreement sees ESS contributing to AshOil's scope of training,
educating and employing local job seekers and providing economic engagement for

Our support services business in Denmark has oevelopeo an
innovative solution to reouce the amount ol chemicals ano lluios

'Viima' is a new method of 'dry mopping' with a new type of microfibre. The system
requires almost no water and reduces the need to dry the floor, thus eliminating a
step in the cleaning process.
This system reduces the consumption of cleaning fluids and chemicals by up to 90%
and also reduces the use of water by more than 100 litres per day. Studies have
shown that this equates to a reduction in CO emissions of more than 70%,
compared to other traditional cleaning methods.
This is equivalent to three tonnes of CO per year for every 1,000m cleaned.

Our business in Turkey is going from strength to strength with its commitments to the
environment by introducing a number of activities not just for our employees, but also
our customers so that we can tackle environmental challenges together.
A series of environmental checklists and short films have been developed to help
raise awareness of how much water, heat and energy we are all using ÷ but could
also save. Left a light on? Switch it off. Found a tap running? Turn it off.
A little awareness can make such a difference.

through our operations.
The recycling of cooking oil is becoming more prevalent in our industry, and through
partnership with many of our clients, in the UK alone we have recycled more than
940,000 litres of used cooking oil to be transformed into biodiesel.
Biodiesel has many environmentally beneficial properties, the main being that it can
be described as carbon neutral as it produces no CO .
This represents an amazing CO saving of more than 1,700 tonnes!

Our aim is to set industry leading standards that set the benchmark on performance regarding purchasing and supply chain practices, providing our
customers with the assurance that we are constantly striving to achieve the highest possible standards. We regularly review country performance against
our Global Supply Chain Standards to promote consistency in operating practices across the Group.
The provenance and origin of the food we purchase is a key consideration for us. We require that food is purchased only from authorised suppliers and we
work closely with our supply partners to ensure that they meet our required supply chain standards.
Ìn 2013, we refreshed our Global Supply Chain Standards to reflect an increased focus on routing product testing and supply chain traceability. The
Standards are being progressively rolled out across all our markets and we will report on our progress in December 2014.
Compass is committed to ensuring that all our dealings with suppliers ÷ from the point of search and selection, through to supply and payment ÷ are
conducted in accordance with our guiding principles of responsible and ethical trading. Our criteria include:
We, or our nominated third-party auditor, monitor supplier practices to ensure that our suppliers (and their suppliers) adhere to the above criteria.

The campaign was designed to address client concerns about waste and the cost

reducing the amount of waste we generate. As an industry, food service has a huge
opportunity to responsibly change the ways we use energy, water, food and

The campaign is focused on a specific sector of American family farms, at times
referred to as 'Ag in the Middle', and the fastest diminishing farm segment in
America.
These mid-sized farms may become virtually extinct within the next 10 years without
additional outlets to sell their products. Our campaign has made an important
contribution to the support of these farms and this year alone, we have purchased
US$29 million (£18 million) in products from Ag in the Middle farms.
We are pleased to have exceeded our goal set in 2010, to support 2,013 farms by

As a global food service company, we recognise that we have an enormous impact on what our 20+ million consumers choose to eat and drink. We make a
positive contribution to their diet and nutrition and we are proud of the role we play in promoting health, wellbeing and nutrition, particularly as in some of the
markets where we operate, the food we provide may be the only nutritious meal eaten by our consumers that day.
We are working closely with our clients (and through them with our consumers), suppliers, governments and regulators across the world to respond to public
health issues such as those associated with obesity and diet. Our consumers are becoming increasingly sophisticated about the nutritional content of their
food choices and during 2013 we have continued to roll out our healthy eating frameworks, such as Balanced Choices, Whole+Sum and Webtrition, across
the business to enhance nutritional labelling across our food product range, providing consumers with the information that they need to make informed
choices.
Ìn the UK, we are actively supporting a government initiative called the Responsibility Deal, aimed at addressing health and wellbeing within the UK
population by encouraging the nation to adopt a more balanced lifestyle. We are the only food service company to have signed up to all four pledges of the
scheme. As a demonstration of our commitment to the initiative, we have pledged to improve the nutritional labelling in our sites, including the introduction of
calorie counts. We also continue to reduce the levels of salt and artificial trans fats in the food we serve.
Ìn EU markets, we are improving our 'signposting' to consumers regarding allergens, ahead of the impending legislation in December 2014.

collectively lost the most weight would win the competition!
The aim of the competition was to promote a healthier lifestyle and encourage other
members of staff to take part. All team members were supported by a nutritionist who
helped them adopt healthier eating habits, seek regular food intake consultations and
regular health screenings.
This challenge has resulted in some great benefits for our colleagues, in particular an
increased awareness of their own health and eating habits. Following the successful
participation and motivation of all involved, further programmes will be launched on
nutrition and health food training to support a continuous health programme.

The aim of the competition was to promote a healthier lifestyle and encourage other
members of staff to take part. All team members were supported by a nutritionist who
helped them adopt healthier eating habits, seek regular food intake consultations and
regular health screenings.
This challenge has resulted in some great benefits for our colleagues, in particular an
increased awareness of their own health and eating habits. Following the successful
participation and motivation of all involved, further programmes will be launched on
nutrition and health food training to support a continuous health programme.
At the end of the 12 week period, an incredible 165 kg was lost across the team ÷
and they are still losing!

Morrison joins Fartnership lor a Healthier America
The Cateys are the Caterer and Hotelkeeper's annual awards, and are considered to
be the 'Oscars' of the catering and hospitality industry in the UK.
The initiative, which was launched last year, takes a fresh approach to health and
wellbeing and has become the central platform through which we inform and educate
our people, clients and consumers about nutrition and responsible sourcing.
Over the past 18 months, we've taken great strides to make a difference, investing
over £1 million in recipe and menu systems, rolling out GDA labelling to over 1,800
Compass sites and helping over 6,000 colleagues learn more about health and
wellbeing. We've also reduced the amount of salt in our supply chain, trimmed
saturated fats from our food and made 1% milk our standard, amongst lots of other
initiatives.
Know Your Food has also received the Healthy Hospitality award at the first 'Footprint
Health and Vitality Honours' ceremony.
Morrison, our Healthcare sector brano in the US, has become the
lirst looo service company to commit to The Fartnership lor a
Healthier America ,FHA, ano its Hospital Healthy Iooo Initiative.
Morrison's commitment, along with that of its clients, could help 41 million patients
and sell 403 million meals in cafés, vending areas and kiosks annually.
The PHA Hospital Healthy Food Ìnitiative seeks to move healthcare institutions
toward delivering nutritious options to meet the needs of the children, families and
communities they serve. Ìn joining the initiative, Morrison has agreed to make a
commitment to adopt standards for nutrition labelling, healthy food marketing,
wellness meal offerings, elimination of deep fat fryers, increases in healthy
beverages and increases in the fruits and vegetables it offers.
Ìn 2010 Morrison also became the first food service contractor in the USA to sign the
'Healthy Food in Healthcare Pledge' from 'Healthcare Without Harm' and has
implemented the purchase of rBGH free dairy products, meat without the routine use
of antibiotics as well as working directly with suppliers to eliminate added trans fats
and to reduce sodium in food processing.

Our Key Performance Ìndicators (KPÌs) relate to the business strategy and drive the sustainable development of the business. Since we started our CR
journey in 2007, we have seen continued improvement in our sustainability performance against baseline data.
We successfully extended the scope of our reporting this year, both in terms of KPÌs and participating countries. We now report performance across our Top
20 countries and our ultimate goal is to report on all countries in which we operate.
We measure and report internally on our performance against each Key Performance Ìndicator and performance is reviewed by the CR Committee.
