METRO SUSTAINABLE is our ambition for sustainable and responsible business conduct. We want to share our knowledge in this field and get our customers ahead of their competitors.
And we see ourselves as part of society. We aim to harmonise economic, environmental and social objectives. We act today for a better tomorrow. For a future worth living.
The sustainable development goals of the United Nations (SDGs) and the UN Global Compact offer us a global framework for this.
METRO SUSTAINABLE is the framework for and driver of our actions towards customer sustainability. It means placing METRO at the core of transforming and driving responsible and sustainable business – at our own business but most importantly along our supply chain and with our customers. Within our sustainability focus areas we show, how we want to achieve this.
METRO’s sustainability related commitments, positions and targets offer guidance on how we formally assess and address certain sustainability issues, assuming environmental and social responsibility within business.
METRO believes in sustainable business processes. We use resources sparingly. We protect the climate. We avoid and reduce waste.
METRO wants food to be enjoyed till the last bite. So we join forces along the supply chain against wasting food.
We like to do things differently; so do our customers. So we diversify our protein offer to attract the conscious consumer.
We know that a perfect ingredient makes the difference, especially when it comes to health, quality and safety as well as social and environmental responsibility. That’s why we want to do things right from the start.
METRO believes in sustainable business processes. That’s why we channel our energy and resources to where it makes most sense: our customers’ business success, at the same time helping to save energy and resources on the rest.
Our business is a people's business. Not just here in our restaurants and stores but all the way to the source of our products. We care about people and stand strong for human rights. Championing our customers by promoting Human Rights.
One key to success is sustainable products which differentiate the business – our own and that of our customers. At the same time conscious choices make the difference for end-consumers and the environment.
We know it's the product that counts. So we use as little packaging as possible and as much as necessary. That’s why we innovate together with partners to come to zero waste.
We know that diversity makes us stronger and inclusion opens doors to new learnings and opportunities. That is why we embrace the difference.
Giving back to society is one aspect of responsible business.
