Sustainable products

We have classified the products and investments in each division that are sustainable from a climate and/or biodiversity perspective. We define sustainable products as those which have a significantly smaller impact on the climate or biodiversity than comparable products or which are important for adapting to climate change or preventing the loss of biodiversity. We report investments which decrease emissions from our own operations or emissions caused by our customers’ actions.

Although we are still developing our monitoring systems, we present the share of net sales of products that are compliant with our classification in the grocery and car trade divisions in 2022.
