Coop and its stakeholders

As well as our employees, our stakeholders in upstream and downstream stages of the value chain are vital to our success and the implementation of our sustainability strategy. With this in mind, we hold a regular Coop Stakeholder Forum, which allows direct and in-depth dialogue with representatives of our five key stakeholder groups. It is an opportunity to take stock of what stakeholders expect and want of us and incorporate these in our targets and measures. The insights gained from dialogue with our stakeholders are reflected in our Materiality Analysis.

Our stakeholder engagement

At the Coop Stakeholder Forum in 2019, we evaluated together our multi-year targets together to the end of 2021. We also engage in regular dialogue with various stakeholders concerning the ongoing revision of targets from 2022 onwards. For 2022, our next Business Partner Conference is planned, the aim of which is drive forward sustainable innovations with our business partners. Our manufacturing companies and the Transgourmet Group are also in constant dialogue with public bodies, associations and organizations as well as employees, customers and suppliers.
