Environment and Corporate Social Responsibility

Thinking about the future now.

Because we care about the future, the environment and fellow human beings

If you are concerned about issues of the future, contribute your ideas to our Corporate Social Responsibility team! Sustainability is a top priority for us, be it in the design of our national and international supply chains or in the area of social commitment. Our experts develop responsibility guidelines and concepts, advise our sourcing units with product selection and are in continuous contact with internal and external stakeholders.

Social commitment

When it comes to social commitment, HOFER is dedicated to achieving greater results with shared activities. That includes the corporate “We collect” campaign or our own HOFER corporate volunteering programme. Contribute to our goal of making responsibility a tangible experience for our customers, employees and suppliers.


Our Environment team is dedicated to increasing the energy efficiency of our over 530 stores and is taking numerous exciting actions for climate protection. In addition, the department is the central contact point for all tasks associated with minimising food waste, such as releasing food items that can no longer be sold to charitable organisations.
