With the ten principles of the Global Compact and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the United Nations provides the global and concrete framework for sustainable economic, social and environmental development. METRO sees itself as part of society. Therefore, we support the SDGs and, with our commitment to sustainability, pay attention to achieving the global agenda. Since 2010, METRO has been a member of the UN Global Compact Initiative. METRO integrates the ten principles into its daily work, strategy and corporate culture. This underscores our actions as a responsible, internationally operating company.
We regularly report on our progress in implementing the UN Global Compact in our CR Report.
Our overarching human rights policy demonstrates our conviction of respect for internationally recognized human rights within our own operations and throughout our entire value chain. We respect these as described in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the core labour standards of the International Labour Organization (ILO).
