Our sustainability report
Facts and figures on the economic, environmental and social impact of our business activities
We believe that ongoing discussions and detailed reporting on our commitment to sustainability are essential. That is why we have regularly published a sustainability report since 2004. We also devote at least one double-page spread in the Coopzeitung newspaper to this important topic every week.
Annual Report of the Coop Group
Sustainability is part of everyday life throughout the Coop Group and is a core element of our business activities. In 2016 we therefore decided to report on developments at the Coop Group throughout the year in an integrated report. This includes the key facts and figures about our commitment to sustainability.
Sustainability Progress Report
Sometimes, our stakeholders, partners and sustainability experts have specific information needs that cannot be met in a regular annual report in terms of scope and level of detail. We are now compiling this specific information in our “Sustainability Progress Report”, which is published each year at the end of May.
Some part of the Coop Group also report in detail about their commitment to sustainability, for instance the Coop production facility Chocolats Halba or Transgourmet France.
The Coopzeitung newspaper has the largest print-media circulation in Switzerland. Each week, our “Actions not words” section provides background knowledge about people, animals and the environment, and we suggest some practical tips on how our readers can make their daily routines more sustainable.
Brochure "Actions not words"
This brochure contains a brief summary of our approach to sustainability and a selection of our more than 300 actions for people, animals and nature.
