Participation in the United Nations Global Compact – the world’s largest corporate responsibility initiative – helps METRO anchor sustainability in its corporate strategy. It also provides the appropriate framework for our long-standing commitment to responsible and ethically correct business operations.

With this Communication on Progress, METRO fulfills its commitment to demonstrate which guidelines and measures it is taking to improve its performance within the areas of human rights, labor standards, environmental protection and anti-corruption, and to ensure that the 10 basic principles of the Global Compact are respected not only today, but also in the future, in strategic decisions as well as in daily work.
