Climate neutrality by 2040

By 2040, METRO will reduce specific greenhouse gas emissions per m² of sales and delivery area in its own global business operations to such an extent that the wholesale specialist will become climate neutral for the most part through its own efforts. To this end, METRO is driving forward an ambitious package of measures supported by investments in technology and innovation.

To become climate neutral, METRO is investing in:

  • energy efficiency and renewable energies
  • switching to natural refrigerants in cooling
  • the phase-our of fossil heat
  • the expansion of photovoltaic systems
  • the electrification of the company car fleet
  • zero emission model in new store construction.
