The Co-operative Group: Sustainability Reporting

The Co-operative Group is one of the world’s largest consumer co-operatives, owned by more than eight million members. It is the UK’s fifth biggest food retailer operating across the country with almost 2,800 local, convenience and medium-sized stores.  Amongst its other wholly-owned businesses are the UK’s number one funeral services provider, a major general insurer and a developing legal services business. DNVGL was engaged to undertake independent assurance of sustainability reporting within the Co-op’s 2015 Annual Report and additional information presented on its web-site.  Amongst the data in scope was information on British Sourcing, Animal Welfare, Diet & Health and Biodiversity.  To see the reports and to find out more about our work click here >
