Since Cactus was founded in 1967, we have been committed to protecting the environment and promoting sustainable development which improve quality of life! Respect for the environment is an integral part of our Group’s vision.

“Cactus.Natierlech.” reflects our commitment to successfully reconcile consumption with respect for the environment. It reflects our tireless efforts to provide you with alternatives that are kind to both people and nature, as well as our commitments as a corporate citizen. At Cactus, we believe that it is our responsibility to support local farmers, promote healthy balanced eating among the very young through Yuppi, our fun, educational mascot, and to be involved in practical projects to preserve biodiversity in Luxembourg.

At Cactus, day in day out, we are all concerned with sustainable development!

• We offer a choice of alternatives: our buyers travel the world, visiting trade fairs and searching out environmentally-friendly products. They focus on innovative products, made from materials and raw materials which are nature-friendly and better for human beings. On our shelves, you’ll find household cleaning items and garden products free of chemicals, toothbrushes made from plastic recycled, 100% natural cosmetics and over 150 Fairtrade-certified products, to mention just a few examples.

• We support organic farming: for more than 25 years, organic items have featured prominently in our stores. At Cactus, we firmly believe that to preserve our land and water, it is our responsibility to promote sustainable farming. We have set up local production channels to be used by existing organic farmers and also to encourage more farmers to be bold and switch over to organic production methods. You’ll find over 2,500 certified organic items on our shelves to fit all requirements and all budgets.

> Our organic commitment

We protect the environment: our business has an impact on the environment. To minimise our environmental footprint, we make sure that our resources are managed responsibly. To achieve our drive towards continuous improvement, we constantly analyse our procedures. A few examples that demonstrate our commitment to ensuring a more sustainable future are our investment in cutting-edge technology refrigeration systems and chilled counters, the installation of photovoltaic panels on the rooftops of our supermarkets and warehouses, the introduction of a fleet of electric vehicles and logistics chain optimisation (from the packing of goods to their delivery in our stores).

Since 1993, through our unique partnership with natur&ëmwelt Fondation Hëllef fir d’Natur we have been committed to preserving Luxembourg’s fauna and flora. Thanks to our support, it has been possible to develop projects such as the Cactus Bësch in Lieler, the Cactus Bongert in Ettelbruck, and also the Cactus Weier in Mensdorf.

• Every initiative counts: we are trying to have a positive impact on our partners and suppliers and to make them our allies. We are firmly convinced that everyone can do their bit to create a better world. With this in mind, we give our partners support and encouragement to introduce innovative projects that are in line with a return to “natural practices”, for example, clean products, more environmentally responsible packaging and healthier recipes… are just a few of the initiatives that we welcome and are actively encouraging.
