The Migros Group companies are steadily reducing their power consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Most companies have agreed binding targets for CO2 reduction and energy efficiency with the state and cantons.
Reduction of energy consumption & greenhouse gas emissions
In order to achieve their objectives, the Migros Group companies focus primarily on saving energy. The second most important measure is the expansion of renewable energies. In 2018, the Migros Group also decided to gradually phase out HCFC refrigerants, which have high global warming potential. The new cooling systems use natural refrigerants or those with low global warming potential that cause minimal harm to the environment.
Promotion of renewable energy
As a pioneer in the field, Migros is generating more and more electricity with photovoltaic systems on its roofs, and is replacing fossil fuels with heat from renewable sources.
