As part of METRO GROUP, we comply with the METRO GROUP Compliance Programme. This means all activities are in absolute compliance with all applicable laws and the Business Principles laid down by the group.
The activities of MIAG are subject to manifold laws, regulations and self-imposed standards of conduct. MIAG has created a group-wide standardised Compliance Programme which combines and complements the existing measures to ensure compliance with these rules.
Essential components of the Compliance Programme are the eight Business Principles of METRO GROUP:
- We make a strict distinction between personal interests and the interests of the company.
- We do not offer anyone an advantage that cannot be justified.
- We do not use our position to our personal advantage.
- We treat all information related to the company as confidential.
- We respect the rules of fair competition.
- We treat everyone as equals.
- We are a fair employer.
- We respect all legal provisions and regulations.
The goal of the Compliance Programme is to support all MIAG employees in complying with relevant laws, regulations and standards of conduct. For this purpose, clearly defined measures were established. The implementation of such measures is organised and coordinated by the MIAG Compliance Officer.
Employees are informed about the standards of conduct, laws and regulations relevant for their work area. The Compliance Organisation also provides necessary support for complying with the resulting obligations by offering special training sessions and counsel as well as self-assessment tools on the intranet.
In unclear situations, MIAG employees can contact their respective superiors or their local Compliance Officer. In addition, the employees and external third parties have the option of reporting any compliance violations to the MIAG (METRO GROUP) Compliance Whistleblower System. Notifications to this system can be made directly via the Internet. Where required, incidents may also be reported anonymously.
