Sustainability is at the heart of what we do

We are convinced that sustainability is a cornerstone of long-term corporate success. As a cooperative, we pledged 150 years ago to procure products in a cost-effective way while preserving the commercial and social interests of our members. Today, these rightful interests include preventing any negative impact resulting from our business activities and conducting our business in a sustainable manner. Environmental protection has been enshrined in our Articles of Association since 1973, and in 2006 we formulated our sustainability principles.
