METRO Corporate Compliance

Compliance – It's up to you!

Compliance and integrity are of great importance in METRO GROUP. The Management Board therefore requires all employees and members of the METRO GROUP managements to act in accordance with current law, the METRO GROUP Business Principles, and company guidelines – everywhere and at all times. Compliance is not negotiable for us!

This whistleblowing system has been established as a part of the METRO GROUP Compliance system in order to receive reports about observed compliance violations within the METRO GROUP; it is accessible to METRO GROUP employees and external third parties, e.g. customers or business partners.

The system generally allows for the anonymous reporting of incidents. METRO GROUP prefers reporting persons to identify themselves, however, as this facilitates the fast and efficient handling of investigations. All reports are treated with the strictest confidentiality, and whistleblowers are protected as a matter of course.

Your report contributes to the economic success of the company and the preservation of jobs.

Thank you very much for your cooperation!

Management Board, METRO AG
