METRO

METRO www.metroag.de

METRO is a partner of many small and mid-sized independent companies. Their success is our focus. We have made it our goal to lift the food and hospitality sector to a new level and to take advantage of the unique opportunity that the comprehensive digitisation of the industry presents – both for our customers, who can transform their business for long-term prosperity, and for us. By accompanying them on this path, we can foster customer loyalty and tap additional economic potential. Our vision: to deliver sustainable solutions with superior added economic value for independent entrepreneurs.

 

As a platform, we are working jointly with diverse market players to set tomorrow’s standards: for absolute customer focus, practice-oriented digital solutions and sustainable business models.

 

The foundation for this is our profitable wholesale segment, which is oriented to business customers and enjoys stable growth rates – because the core of our business is our trusting relationship with our some 21 million customers in 35 countries. We see ourselves as a relationship company.

 

METRO is furthermore shaped by highly motivated employees who fill our open corporate culture with life. They combine passion, a collaborative approach and outstanding performance in our core business. In boldly pursuing new ideas, they continually challenge the status quo and drive our business forward.

European Movement International

European Movement International www.europeanmovement.eu

The European Movement is the largest pan-European network of pro-European organisations. It is present in 39 countries and encompasses 36 International Associations, bringing together European civil society, business, trade unions, NGOs, political parties, local authorities and academia.

 

Founded 70 years ago, we have continuously advocated in favour of European co-operation and integration, based on the principles of peace, democracy, liberty, solidarity, equality, justice, the respect for human rights and the rule of law.

 

Today the European Movement seeks to provide a platform to encourage and facilitate the active participation of citizens and stakeholders from a cross-section of sectors in the development of European solutions to our common challenges. We offer thought leadership on the issues that confront Europe; we seek to inform the debates on our Union’s future, involve citizens and stakeholders in the decisions that affect them and influence policy-makers in favour of an open, inclusive, transparent and united Europe.

 

The European Movement aims to be the place where civil society, business, trade unions, NGOs, political parties, local authorities and academia come together to craft a way forward for the European Union. We seek to develop new ideas to address the challenges we face, be it economic or political. We want to spark debate on the EU’s architecture and develop forward-looking proposals on how to govern our affairs at the European level.

 

Our members are engaged in the daily business of influencing policy-making in the areas that affect them. The European Movement is the place where they have the opportunity to discuss the bigger issues, with organisations representing other parts of society, and allow them to shape the debate on the future of Europe.
