CSR & Compliance

Metz have been members of UN Global Compact since 2013 and the backbone of our CSR strategy is shaped by their ten principles for Human Rights and Labour Standards, Environment and Anti-corruption.

Every year we document and communicate through our “communication on progress” report how we work with the ten principles, how we address the SDG´s and how we work with sustainability through products (e.g. production and consumption).

In 2020 we won an award for our report given by the danish “FSR – danske revisorer” and UN global compact network Denmark. Our report is highlighted for being a well-balanced report that communicates well about Global compacts 10 principles. Where the use of data is trust-worthy and creates transparency.
