Annual Update:

Submitted: 29 April, 2013

In 2011, The Co-operative Group launched a groundbreaking new Ethical Operating Plan with one clear goal: to be the most socially responsible business in the UK.

Progress on this goal will be reported on an annual basis in our annual Sustainability Report. The Ethical Operating Plan can be accessed by following this link -
