The values responsibility and credibility are part of the Group strategy and are upheld along the entire value-added chain. Migros has been committed to the ten principles of the UN Global Compact since 2006. It also makes an important contribution to the implementation of the UNO's global sustainability goals.
The Migros Group has a clear concept of sustainability. It offers a broad range of sustainable products and services, serves as a partner for a healthy lifestyle, is a model employer, sets standards for climate protection and resource efficiency, and promotes social cohesion.
In 2018, the independent ratings agency ISS-oekom analysed the social and environmental commitment of the Migros Group in detail. Of 151 retail companies assessed worldwide, Migros achieved the best result throughout the industry. This made it the world's most sustainable retailer in the reporting year.
The strategic sustainability management is performed on several levels:
Regular progress checks
In order to manage the achievement of targets, Migros uses KPIs to measure its progress in the area of sustainability. As part of regular monitoring, the degree to which basic requirements are implemented and individual goals met in the strategic business units is checked centrally by the Federation of Migros Cooperatives (FMC). The progress (including status indicators) is reported to internal decision makers and, to some extent, made public.
