In order to further develop its commitment to the SDGs and ethical consumption, JCCU has launched a full-scale product series "CO・OP Sustainable" in February 2021, using main ingredients that are friendly to the environment and society.
JCCU has been promoting initiatives to support ethical consumption in CO・OP Brand Products based on the Co-op Action Plan for SDGs adopted in 2018. With more and more certification marks indicating that the product is environmentally and socially friendly, and by displaying a common logo mark on packages, it makes it easier for members to understand and select sustainable products.
In developing the "CO・OP Sustainable series, one of three messages, "Protecting ocean resources," "Protecting forest resources," and "Organic" will be displayed at the bottom of the common logo.
