The retail trade only has a limited influence on the CO2 intensity of the products traded and the customer preferences. In the area of conflict between their own sustainability goals, the economic framework and customer demand, the retail trade is confronted with a host of questions and challenges. myclimate offers companies instruments and measures to become more sustainable in their own business and thus to meet the increasing demands of the customers.
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.
For unavoidable emissions, you can finance our very diverse, high-quality climate protection projects on the basis of your calculated emissions. We would also be happy to advise you on the possibilities of insetting, i.e. financing climate protection projects based on the emissions calculated for your own value chain.
Since the start of 2018, Migros cooperatives have been declaring all greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the air transportation of their goods and making equivalent contributions to myclimate climate protection projects. 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.
Take stock of your company’s CO2 emissions. Calculating your carbon footprint is the first step towards successful climate protection, as it helps you identify the most effective ways to reduce your company’s emissions.
Optimise your value chain and improve your company’s carbon footprint. Reduce your CO2 emissions and contribute towards achieving the climate goals of the Paris Agreement.

We therefore recommend actively involving your employees. Last but not least, you will also be able to strengthen your status as a progressive, attractive company.
You as a company can make a contribution to the financing of myclimate climate protection projects. In addition to reducing your own emissions, this can be an important building block in your climate strategy towards reaching net zero. By engaging this way, you are already gaining voluntary experience in factoring in the costs of unavoidable CO₂ emissions and taking responsibility for them as a company.
Showcase your climate protection efforts and position yourself credibly and transparently as a responsible and progressive company. Benefit from increased brand awareness and recognition and motivate other companies and individuals to take action on climate change. By committing to educational projects, you are also laying the foundation for a climate conscious future.
