The retail trade provides us all with a wide variety of goods, ranging from food and all manner of consumer goods to textiles and electrical appliances. As a «point of sale», the retail trade represents the interface between producers and customers. This opens up a wide range of opportunities for communication with customers, including on the topics of sustainability and climate protection.
Whether you are interested in the emissions profile of your locations, your logistics or the products traded, our competent team of environmental scientists will support you in the systematic and comprehensive determination of all relevant CO2 emissions. We will be happy to advise you on setting reduction targets (also based on external measures, e.g. within the framework of the Science-based Targets Initiative) and the appropriate measures to achieve them.
You can offset unavoidable emissions using our wide range of high-quality carbon offset projects. We will also be happy to advise you on insetting options, i.e. offsetting your emissions through measures in your own value chain.
Since the start of 2018, the Migros cooperatives have been declaring, reducing and offsetting all the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the air transportation of its goods. This is realised in climate protection projects that myclimate implements in Migros’ supply chain, both in Switzerland and internationally. The addition of a price for CO₂ emissions acts as a catalyst so that more products are offered where air freight is unnecessary.
Coop has been initiating and financing international projects with the aim of climate protection and sustainability since 2007. Since 2017 Coop has been intentionally funding projects within its own supply chain in Switzerland, to the benefit of farmers and processors who produce for the group’s own sustainable brands Naturaplan and Miini Region.
