Our goods and services have to tick all the right boxes by offering quality, safety, and sound social and environmental ethics – from their production and procurement to their useful lives and their disposal. With this in mind, we want to make the whole value chain sustainable and transparent.
For example, METRO takes a transparent approach to its procurement of products and its usage of resources. We ensure this by maintaining direct relationships with our business partners. We have also developed a cross-industry, international traceability solution together with cooperation partners and the standardisation organisation GS1 Germany.
