Co-op renews its commitment to Manufacture 2030 for a further two years.
Co-op joined the Manufacture 2030 platform in March 2017 as one of its founding partners. Following a very successful launch phase, Co-op has renewed its partnership with Manufacture 2030 for an additional two years. This announcement demonstrates a clear commitment from Co-op to strengthen relationships with their suppliers, enabling them to make good quality products with the lowest possible environmental impact.
Engagement levels from Co-op suppliers on the platform has been high, seeing over 500 members from 250 different companies undertake more than 20,000 interactions, exchanging knowledge and sharing ideas to tackle sustainability challenges at scale – reducing costs, risks and impacts. Topics covered include energy, food redistribution, disposal of soiled plastic sheeting and recycling of food waste.
Co-op are now working with their suppliers to trial the new M2030 bee, an online service that makes it easy for them to identify, investigate and implement resource efficiency actions within their manufacturing and distribution sites.
