We show Responsibility

Sustainability is a crutial part of REWE Group's strategy. Find out more about our spheres of activity below.

REWE Group's Sustainability Strategy

REWE Group's sustainability strategy focuses on all business activities in order to establish more sustainable consumption and tourism across the market. The core of the strategy is the promotion of more sustainable product ranges and fair dealings with partners and suppliers. We act in an environmentally and climate-conscious manner, assume responsibility for our employees and are committed to a viable society.

Sustainability is anchored at the highest level of corporate management – overall responsibility lies with the Chairman of the Executive Board. In addition, each sales line has its own sustainability division, which further develops the sales line’s sustainability strategy.

With the Guideline for Sustainable Business Practices, we have created a binding framework for action that forms the basis for our comprehensive sustainability commitment. In our Declaration of Human Rights, we also commit ourselves to strengthening human rights and preventing human rights violations.

Green Products

The production of REWE Group private label products has an impact on people, animals and environment. The Group is addressing these effects and is working to offer more sustainable product ranges. To this end, we always look at the entire supply chain and are increasingly committed to meeting social and ecological challenges.

We promote the regionality of the goods, the range of organic products and the labelling with our own PRO PLANET label. We also systematically reduce packaging and foster biodiversity.
 In tourism as well, we are working to create more sustainable offers. Within the fields of action “Fairness”, “Animal Welfare”, “Resource Conservation” and “Nutrition”, we develop effective measures to reduce ecological and social impacts.
