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 2022, METZ has launched Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTI) reduction targets. This project ensures a continuous focus on reducing our internal CO2 emissions, so at METZ we do our part to reach the joint 1.5 degree target in 2030, defined in the Paris Agreement
