We are guided by the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 10 principles of the United Nations Global Compact. These we consider our global yet concrete framework when it comes to sustainable action.
Our wide range of activities and the interrelationship between individual projects and the individual SDGs lead to the effect that our sustainability activities contribute to the 17 goals of the global agenda.
As a member of the UN Global Compact Initiative since 2010, we integrate the 10 UNGC principles into our daily work, strategy and corporate culture.
Our sustainability focus areas support the SDGs, particularly Goal 2 (Zero Hunger), Goal 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), Goal 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production), Goal 13 (Climate Action) and Goal 17 (Partnerships for the Goals) and play a part in achieving them.
By taking these frameworks into account, we emphasise our conduct as a responsible company with global and local operations. METRO sees itself as value-generating part of society and as such plays an active part in achieving sustainable development on an economic, social and environmental level.
