Position on the introduction of carbon pricing
At METRO, we are aware of our global climate responsibility and call, therefore, for the introduction of carbon pricing, preferably at European level.

Position: METRO relies on climate-friendly use of energy
METRO’s strategic climate protection target is to reduce its corporate carbon footprint by 50% in terms of CO2 by 2030 compared with 2011. To achieve this target, METRO is not only saving power, heat and drinking water and is phasing out the use of F-gases in refrigeration plants but also relies on the use of renewable and low-emission technologies. This is how we are able to substitute our energy consumption.
