Coop Trading is committed to responsible business conduct throughout our supply chains, while remaining an efficient sourcing company for the Nordic Coop Group.

Code of Conduct

Through our Code of Conduct we require that our suppliers and their suppliers comply with the principles of the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) or another approved ethical standard. The principles concern decent working conditions and fundamental workers’ rights. The principles also describe minimum expectations to how our suppliers prevent corruption and protect the environment.

Responsible Product & Quality Standards

Through our Product & Quality Requirements we require that our suppliers and the products they deliver live up to our standards. This is to ensure that the Nordic Coop Group provides consumers with healthy and safe food and non-food products, while maintaining sustainable conditions for people, animals, and our planet.

Continuous improvements moving into the future

We continuously work to prevent risks to human health and to protect the environment by phasing out substances of very high concern (SVHC), and by paying special attention to value chains that use critical raw materials such as for example; coffee, tea, cocoa, palm oil, and soy.

We aim to increase reusable, renewable and recycled materials in our packaging while also considering a design that minimises food waste.
