3 pillars in the organisation

We monitor all of our efforts around sustainability from the domain Sustainability. In organisational terms, we have divided this domain into three pillars. This makes it easier to work efficiently and achieve our goals.

  • Each pillar reports to the Domain Board. This meets four times a year, chaired by Jef Colruyt. The Domain Board is made up of representatives from across the whole company: from corporate services as well as the various store formulas. They know the current projects inside out.
  • Each pillar has its own tactical area meetings and operational working groups.

This organisational structure ensures that sustainability is deeply rooted in every part of Colruyt Group.
