METRO remains in the FTSE4Good index series. This is the result of the current index review in June 2021. The British FTSE4Good is an index family that has been in existence since 2001 and analyzes and rates large and medium-sized companies that are committed to sustainability and corporate social responsibility. METRO has been listed in the FTSE4Good Index without interruption since 2017.

To be included in the FTSE4Good Index, companies must be committed to 5 areas: working towards environmental sustainability, respecting and promoting human rights, providing good working conditions in the supply chain, preventing corruption and actively fighting climate change. In the evaluation, these 5 fields of action are weighted differently - depending on the respective company focus and the different risks associated with them.

FTSE Russell has now reconfirmed that METRO has been independently assessed according to the FTSE4Good criteria and is meeting the requirements to remain listed in the FTSE4Good index series.

Together with the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, the CDP Rating, the MSCI as well as the Corporate Rating of ISS-Oekom, FTSE4Good is one of the major sustainability index families whose evaluation METRO classifies as material. Within the framework of the stakeholder dialogue, the wholesale company informs the capital market about METRO's sustainability management.
