In this day and age, the value of a company is not only measured in terms of size and profits anymore. In a globalised world that offers new opportunities every day, other parameters have become important.
For a long time now, METRO GROUP has been putting emphasis on the understanding that a successful corporate strategy can only be a sustainable one: As an international retail group with more than 220,000 employees, whose core business is food products and whose core clientele consists of independent businesses, METRO GROUP does not only have a particular responsibility, but also the opportunity to contribute to a sustainable economy.
In a keynote address at the International Travel Trade Show ITB on 10 March 2017, Olaf Koch, Chairman of the Management Board of METRO GROUP, described the characteristics of a sustainable corporate strategy. He explained how sustainability is integrated in METRO GROUP’s corporate strategy in his presentation entitled “Acting today for tomorrow – sustainability in corporate strategy”.
