Share this article

Coop Switzerland has announced that it has discontinued the automatic printing of receipts at staffed tills.

The move is part of the retailer's sustainability strategy and will result in saving more than 400 tonnes of paper every year.

Halting Automatic Receipt Printing

For the last two years, Coop Switzerland ceased automatic printing of receipts at self-checkouts.

It allows customers to choose whether they want to print out a receipt at the end of the payment process.

Following the success of this initiative, the retailer will discontinue automatic printing of receipts at the tills in Coop supermarkets, the food departments of the Coop City department stores, the Karma and Sapori sales outlets, and at Coop To Go.

Since 2015, the retailer has been providing digital receipts for customers with a Supercard.

The receipt is no longer sent by e-mail, but is automatically stored on Supercard.ch under 'My purchases' after each purchase, the retailer added.

Coop Switzerland Sustainability Strategy

By reducing paper consumption, Coop Switzerland is contributing to its sustainability strategy as it aims to become a zero-waste company.

Last summer, the Swiss retailer published its first digital sustainability report, outlining the efforts undertaken to be more sustainable.

For its group sustainability strategy, Coop has defined six areas around sustainability based on the three pillars – sustainable ranges, environmental and climate protection, and employees and social commitment – and has adopted new multi-year goals for the entire group up to 2026.
