Comprehensive sustainability communication

We report comprehensively on our commitment to sustainability and provide detailed facts and figures on our business, social and environmental activities.

Transparent reporting

For us, a permanent dialogue and detailed reports on our commitment to sustainability are essential. Since 2004 we have therefore published a regular sustainability report, and we dedicate at least one double page to this important topic every week in the Coop member press.

Detailed reporting

Annual Report of the Coop Group

Sustainability is part of everyday life throughout the Coop Group and is integral to our business activities. In 2016 we therefore decided to report on developments at the Coop Group throughout the year in an integrated report. This includes the key facts and figures about our commitment to sustainability.

Coop Sustainability Progress Report

Sometimes, our stakeholders, partners and sustainability experts have specific information needs that cannot be met in the Annual Report in terms of scope and level of detail. We are now compiling this specific information in our «Sustainability Progress Report», which is published at the end of May.

Some units of the Coop Group also report in detail about their commitment to sustainability; Chocolats Halba and Transgourmet France, for instance, publish their own sustainability report.
