As Switzerland's largest retailer, Migros is committed to protecting natural resources and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It promotes renewable energies and raises awareness of environmental issues among its customers.

Energy & Climate

In 2015, Migros opened its first plus-energy branch, which produces more electricity than it consumes over the course of a year. At the beginning of 2016, Migros was presented with the Watt d’Or award by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy, in recognition of its long-standing commitment to climate protection and energy efficiency.

At the same time, it reduced the emissions of its lorries and improved the returnable containers used to transport bananas.
