ICA Gruppen adresses important issues and initiatives regarding the environment, quality, ethical trade, health and community engagement in the sustainability report for the third quarter of 2016.

“Most of what we do in the area of sustainability involves long-term initiatives and continuous improvements. But on top of this we do not hesitate to try novel – and sometimes even unconventional – approaches. These include, without a doubt, our Klimaträtt (“Climate right”) project, which we have been conducting in partnership with WWF, Chalmers University of Technology and Uppsalahem, among others. In September the UN announced that Klimaträtt has been awarded as one of most innovative and scalable examples of what companies can do create digital solutions for reduced environmental impact,” comments Per Strömberg, President and CEO of ICA Gruppen.
