We are a company with long-term goals

In order to create a solid framework for our commitment to sustainability, we adopted company-wide targets for the entire Coop Group in 2013.

These multi-annual sustainability targets extend all the way to 2020 and define central topics as well as concrete quantitative and qualitative targets for retail, wholesale and production. The different markets involved were also taken into account when creating these targets. We want to achieve these targets throughout the entire Coop Group by 2020.

Targets for pillar 1: Sustainable products and services

    • We are the most expert provider of particularly sustainable ranges.
    • We have transparent product chains which take account of people, animals and the environment.

Targets for pillar 2: Resource efficiency and climate protection

    • We are significantly reducing our own energy consumption and protecting the climate by systematically reducing CO2 emissions.
    • We are reducing and optimizing specific use of materials and substances and waste.
    • We have innovative and environmentally friendly mobility and logistics solutions.

Targets for pillar 3: Employees and society

    • We are a progressive and fair employer.
    • We recognize our social responsibility.
