Supply chain activities

We concentrate our sustainability activities on the parts of the value chain and our interaction with society where our influence on processes relevant to sustainability is the greatest. Here, our actions have an accordingly efficient impact. Our exemplary supply chain comprises the following areas:

  • Procurement, production and processing
  • Transport, warehousing and stores
  • Customers
  • Disposal
  • Social commitment

In the following section, we will provide an overview of our activities in the individual areas that we initiate to address specific challenges. In the process, we also use sustainable development key performance indicators (SD-KPIs) that are relevant to the group management report.

For in-depth information and other key performance indicators relevant to the topic of sustainability, see the METRO GROUP Corporate Responsibility Report 2013/14 as well as the Responsibility section of our website.
