Sustainability is firmly rooted in our company and is practised by all our employees. As a cooperative, sustainability is integral to all our business activities and a key element in our articles of association, mission statements and processes. Our efforts to promote sustainability also make an important contribution to the long-term success of our company and to improving general well-being. That is a priority for us as a cooperative.
Sustainability aspects are also incorporated in the goal-setting process, employee training, operating procedures and, with the various corporate strategies, in the balanced scorecard. With our 2014 to 2020 multi-year sustainability targets, including 2021 transitional targets, we are embedding concrete sustainability targets throughout the Coop Group.
