New targets and strategies to reduce environmental impact

Important aspects of ICA Gruppen’s sustainability work include minimising the Group’s own environmental impact, creating a climate-neutral business and inspiring customers to make more sustainable choices. In 2019 sights were raised further still with the adoption of a new Group target for food waste and a Group-wide fuel ­strategy for all of ICA Gruppen’s Swedish operations.

"We will minimise our environmental impact, create climate-neutral operations and help our customers make more sustainable choices"

Examples of ICA Gruppen's activities:

  • Transition to refrigerants with a lower climate impact 
  • Reduce the number of plastic packaging items and switch to recyclable, recycled and renewable plastics 
  • Focused work to reduce food waste
  • Ecolabelling of pharmaceuticals
