Sustainable Development Goals

We support the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations and wish to play our part in achieving them. In the course of our strategic considerations and our materiality processes, we continually evaluate our work on the basis of the SDGs. As retailers, we believe that our most significant leverage to reduce the impact of our actions and make positive contributions to development is the promotion of sustainable consumption and production patterns (SDG 12). Our activities are centred on ensuring that our ranges of own-brand products are sustainable along the entire value chain (SDG 8, 14, 15). In our operational processes, we see opportunities above all in even more efficient use of resources (SDG 7, 13). In total, we have identified 37 sub-goals, out of the 169 sub-goals, to which we can make a positive contribution.
