  • Description: The decision to refrain from using plastic bags applies to the entire group: for all Karstadt and Kaufhof department stores, sports stores, as well as for its subsidiaries in the food and gastronomy sector. The goal is to continuously reduce the last stocks of disposable plastic bags within the first half of 2020. Meanwhile, the company is working on sustainable, reusable packaging solutions.
  • Impact: Reducing the consumption of single-use plastic and finding sustainable, reusable alternatives
