Our approach

The Mibelle Group belongs to the most sustainable retailer in the world. Even during his lifetime, Gottlieb Duttweiler, Migros’ founder and a bona fide pioneer, called on people to use resources sparingly so the next generation would have a world worth living in. That’s why we’re committed to optimising all environmental protection measures as part of a continuous improvement process in order to reduce our impact on the environment.

Responsible production, research and management has characterised the Mibelle Group from the outset. We have thus ascribed to a comprehensive vision of sustainability and a corresponding commitment.

We not only help our customers to obtain full services optimally tailored to their requirements – sustainability is part of the conviction at our company and offers our customers an expedient added value.


Our targets

We have achieved all sustainability targets of the first stage 2015-2020. Up to 2025, we have set ourselves new ambitious targets, but these are realistic and motivating objectives. The pioneering visions up to 2040 act as beacons providing us with direction in the long term. They prepare the ground for more radical innovations and presuppose certain technical advancements.

We have set ourselves ambitious targets in seven key areas up to 2025.

From 2040, we will only process sustainable raw materials.

From 2040, we will only work with renewable energies.

From 2040, we will only work with closed ecological cycles.

Sustainability stories

Mibelle Group wins BSB Innovation Prize for its products with alcohol from CO2 recycling


With its innovative products made from CO2 recycling, the Mibelle Group has not only won several 1st prizes in the packaging sector but has now also won the coveted and prestigious "BSB Innovation Prize" for its line of household cleaners. 

At the BSB Innovation Awards, diverse products from the consumer goods sector are examined and tested in the areas of raw materials, packaging, as well as applied concepts by the independent BSB consulting and service office. The award is a great honour for the Mibelle Group, as it was able to prevail over established brands such as Weleda in the category "Finished Products".

The award-winning cleaning products contain alcohol (ethanol) extracted directly from exhaust gases that would otherwise pollute the environment and the climate. The technology behind this is an innovation that the Mibelle Group realised together with the start-up LanzaTech. (We informed you about it here). As a result, our customer Migros is already saving 80 tonnes of conventionally produced alcohol this year.

In the medium term, the alcohol obtained from the recycled CO2 is to replace the entire amount of conventionally produced alcohol in the detergents, cleaning agents and cosmetics sector at the Mibelle Group.
