Compliance is not just a buzzword for METRO ADVERTISING, but an important part of our operational work. We operate and organize procurement and international sourcing with professionalism and the highest standards - both in terms of costs and sustainability as well as our sourcing standards and compliance benchmarks.

Especially in terms of compliance, there is no compromise for METRO ADVERTISING. Embedding integrity in all facets is not just one among many endeavors, but increasingly a fundamental requirement for sustainable economic success.

Whistleblower channel

There is also a whistleblower hotline for all service companies of METRO AG. This whistleblower channel enables the reporting of illegal or unethical actions if other communication channels have proven to be less effective or inappropriate. For reports regarding alleged suspicious cases, the whistleblower channel of METRO AG is listed here: simplyright@metro.de.

MA employees can choose to contact their direct supervisors or the respective Compliance Officer. Reports of violations can be made in person, by telephone, via mail or even by letter to the company's local reporting office. If whistleblowers do not feel comfortable raising concerns locally, an (anonymous) report can be submitted via the Group-wide Compliance Reporting System. The Compliance Reporting System can be accessed both internally and externally via the link below: Whistleblower system
