We take responsibility
Ongoing challenges in their everyday lives have a bearing on how our customers behave. From global warming and the increasing problems posed by plastic in the natural environment to resource waste, which includes food waste.
Neither politicians, businesses nor consumers can solve these challenges alone. It is a shared responsibility, and one which calls for joint action and coherent solutions. As Denmark’s largest retailer, we want to lead the way by helping our customers to better understand how they can act more responsibly and be more environmentally aware in their everyday lives. That we do by focusing especially on the Sustainable Development Goals 3, 12 and 13 – while at the same time inviting partnerships with others who are keen to support this challenge and take an active part in addressing it.
Opportunities for all
Running a sustainable company not only involves producing sustainably. It is also about taking social responsibility, and in Salling Group we are proud that there is room for everyone – and that everyone has the opportunity to make a difference, no matter who they are or where they come from.
We prioritise safety, job satisfaction and development highly, and we take responsibility for creating an including work environment that allows our employees to utilise their full potential.

As a large retailer, we have a responsibility to support healthy living through the food we sell. For our customers, it must be easy to find healthy options among our product range.

Shoppers don’t just put food into their shopping basket – they also buy values. For many consumers, it is important for them to be able to choose products with a clear conscience, where, for example, they can support animal welfare, preserve forests, prevent child labour, avoid the use of pesticides and minimise pollution. We want to make such choices easier for our customers.
Strategy and reporting
We have always worked with responsibility and continuously evaluated our strategy, most recently our 2018-strategy. The evaluation has helped to create a stronger structure for our CSR-work, which rests on the entire foundation of our company; namely customers, employees and the goods we sell. Climate and health are the two priorities in our CSR strategy going forward, and based on those two priorities we continuously define a range of focus areas that support these.
