Foreword by Philipp Wyss

Sustainability is a part of everyday life throughout the Coop Group. It is integral to our business activities and, since 1973, has been strategically enshrined in our Articles of Association and Corporate Profile.

This progress report illustrates the Coop Group’s performance each year in sustainability. On this page, you will find detailed information about progress towards our targets and the status of projects implemented in all three pillars of sustainability.

A special highlight for me was the adoption of our new, comprehensive sustainability strategy for the years 2022-2026. As a sustainability pioneer, we will continue to fulfil our responsibility consistently and across the whole Coop group in the future within the framework of the three pillars “sustainable product ranges”, “environmental and climate protection” and “employees and social commitment”. We already have the broadest sustainable product range and were able to increase our sales of sustainable products in the Coop Group to 5.9 billion and sales of organic products to 2.1 billion last year.

This means that we remain the undisputed number 1 in Switzerland in sustainability. This benefits everyone: people, animals, and the environment.

We continue to move forward into the future with a drive for action!
