Living responsible and making sustainable choices is part of Migros corporate philosophy. The principle of sustainability is firmly anchored in our culture and is playing an integral part every day in all our actions that we take in the cooperatives and companies that belong to the Migros Group.
Sustainable by tradition
Economic, social and ecological values have always played an important role in Migros history. They go all the way back to Gottlieb Duttweiler (1888-1962), our founder, who was a highly respected visionary and still is regarded as such until today. Duttweiler, or ‘Dutti’ as we like to call him, wanted his company not only to earn money, but also to serve the common good. This principle is firmly anchored and an unchangeable element in our company’s DNA.
By pioneering ideas and constantly looking for innovative ways of doing things differently he influenced the economic history of Switzerland and made Migros what it is today: the world's most sustainable retailer, the biggest private company in Switzerland and one of Switzerland’s highest valued brands.
