An industry solution for closed-loop packaging recycling and a broader commitment to deforestation-free supply chains: the Migros Group made considerable progress with its sustainability efforts in 2023.

The Migros Group has set itself the ambitious climate target of achieving net zero by 2050 as part of its commitment to the Paris Agreement. It is aiming for a 70 % reduction in the Group’s direct greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1 & 2) by 2030 in comparison with 2019, plus a reduction of around 27.5 % in upstream and downstream supply chain emissions (Scope 3). By the end of 2023, direct emissions had been cut by 57.5 % compared with 2019.

Sustainability initiatives

In the reporting year, Migros actively participated in the establishment of the RecyPac association as a founding member. The cross-industry organisation has set itself the goal of closing the material loops for plastic packaging and drinks cartons in Switzerland. As a further initiative, M-Check, which ensures greater transparency in important sustainability aspects for Migros’ own brands, was expanded to include two dimensions concerning the recyclability of products.

Partnership with WWF Switzerland extended

The partnership with WWF Switzerland was extended in 2023 and expanded to include the entire Migros Group. The Migros Group has committed itself to meeting the minimum standards of WWF Switzerland in the areas of “climate” and “deforestation- and conversion-free supply chains by 2030”. Conversion-free means that no natural ecosystems, such as tropical forests, have been converted to cultivate foodstuffs such as palm oil or to create grazing land for livestock. In 2023, Migros Industrie and Cooperative Retailing published a joint procurement policy on this issue for the Migros Group’s own-brand products and Migros Industrie products for third parties.

Sustainability reporting

On its corporate website, the Migros Group reports on its progress in the area of sustainability. The GRI Index is updated once a year and the relevant figures for the reporting year are published at the same time as the Annual Report. By applying the OECD Guidelines, the Migros Group fulfils its duty of care and transparency in the area of child labour (Art. 964 Swiss Code of Obligations). The reporting has been part of the Migros Group’s consolidated reporting since the 2023 financial year.
