These principles provide clear and consistent rules of conduct – and they apply to everyone at METRO, in every country and company. Our commitment: we are wholesale. That is what we do best. And we want to become even better at it. The basis for this is our ONE METRO spirit: everyone is needed, everyone stands together – with curiosity and determination, courage and drive, commitment, and trust. 

WHOLESALE. EVERYWHERE. EVERY TIME. We do what we do with heart and soul, non-negotiable in all aspects: Efficiency over beauty. From complexity to simplicity. 

GROWTH IS KING. SPEED MATTERS. RESULTS COUNT. We act with full conviction in our strengths. Be courageous, be fast: The result is what counts, not perfection. 

BASIS AND BASICS. Nuts and bolts. No-frills. It’s as simple as that. Top quality, best prices, passionate people, delivery to the point and digitally empowered. Every day. 

WER WILL, DER KANN. NEVER STOP, NO FEAR. Determination has no barriers. Stumbling is okay, failure is allowed – giving up isn’t. 

ONE METRO. Together we’ll reach the top, together we have fun and celebrate success. We’re constantly improving and learning from each other. We are looking for what unites us, not what separates us. We run together and we win together.
