Coop Sustainability

Coop has taken sustainability firmly on board

Coop is convinced that sustainability is a cornerstone of long-term corporate success. It has therefore enshrined sustainability in its Articles of Association, Corporate Profile and Mission Statement. The Executive Committee approved a set of comprehensive principles on sustainability as early as 2007.

Coop is focusing its sustainability efforts on areas that are not only characterized by a high degree of social expectation, but are also of major significance with regards to costs, security of supply or market differentiation from an internal point of view. These also need to be areas in which Coop sees opportunities for action.
