You could say that our commitment to sustainability is part of the DNA of the Mibelle Group and is derived from the ambitious sustainability programme of our parent group Migros (Generation M) and from the strategic sustainability goals of our parent company M-Industry.
We are part of a comprehensive commitment
Migros has already received numerous sustainability awards. In 2015, in a survey which rated 140 retailers worldwide on the basis of 100 social and ecological criteria, independent rating agency Oekom Research classed Migros as by far the world’s most sustainable retailer.
The Mibelle Group played its part in this pleasing result, in the
same way as it is contributing to the promises made and targets set by
Migros and M-Industry for 2020 and 2040. Our performance is continually
monitored to ensure this and we provide regular internal sustainability
reports to Migros and M-Industry.
We have an environmental management system
For a long time the Mibelle Group has been working to cut environmental pollution. The ISO 14001 international environmental management standard awarded to our Swiss sites at Buchs (Mibelle AG) and Frenkendorf (Mifa AG) in 2015 is proof of our success. Both sites thus meet this standard's rigorous requirements.
ISO 14001 certification obliges us to take a systematic, comprehensive management approach: the basis is compliance with all current environmental regulations and environmentally friendly, efficient production processes. We are furthermore optimising all environmental measures as part of a continuous improvement process (CIP). This obligation extends beyond production to all areas, including environmental policy and employee training.
Ambitious targets and pioneering visions
We have set
ourselves ambitious targets, but these are realistic and motivating
objectives up to 2020. 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
