Signe Frese

CSR Director - COOP


Signe has been with Coop for 12 years and been at the forefront of Coop’s CSR strategy for 5 years. One of their overall 12 focus goals is to become Climate positive by 2030, and Coop has, as the only supermarket retailer in Denmark, a climate strategy approved by Science Based Targets Initiative. In this context, Signe has been behind the initiative for Coop to re-use part of the plastic sheeting in which the goods are wrapped during transport, for the production of sustainable recycled plastic bags. 

Coop was ranked as the top sustainable B2C company in Denmark by SSI (Sustainable Brand Index™) in  both 2018, 2019 and 2020. Signe has previously worked as Head of CSR at Irma, Senior Advisor within Climate & Environment at FDB, and as Head of function at the Ministry for Climate during the Cop 15 negotiations.
