Secure Planet

We care about the future of our planet

 

In our business operations, we use resources such as fossil fuels responsibly and do not allow waste to arise in the first place. This gives us leeway for investments to come up with attractive solutions for our customers and for new business areas. Apart from that, we minimize our effect on the climate and protect the environment. Through sustainable procurement and sustainable product choices we also help ensure that resources will continue to be available in the long term. This is how we help to create a sound foundation for the retail sector of tomorrow.

 

Solatube Day-lighting System

METRO Pakistan (Pvt) Limited has taken another big initiative towards energy saving by implementing Solatube Daylighting System in 5 stores (Capital, DHA, Model Town, Ravi, Safari Stores) which are now operating completely on daylight. All our customers now enjoy shopping in daylight as 85% to 90% of our sales floor area is day lit. Between 900 to 1500 electric lights have been turned off in each store due to this initiative.

METRO Pakistan (Pvt) Limited - Clean & Green Pakistan

METRO Pakistan (Pvt) Limited organized an inauguration ceremony of its Solar Power Solution at its Islamabad Store and pledged to reduce Co2 emissions. H.E. Bernhard Schlagheck (Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany in Islamabad, Pakistan) and Mr. Malik Amin Aslam Khan (Federal Minister/Advisor to PM on Climate Change), were invited as chief guest.

The event commenced with a speech by Mr. Marek Minkiewicz (Managing Director METRO Pakistan (Pvt) Limited) in which he shared that the Capital Store is the 4th Store that has successfully implemented Solar Power Solution. At Capital Store alone 1,100 solar panels have been installed that will generate 260kW and 440,000 units of clean energy per year which will in turn reduce 260,000 kg carbon emissions per year which is equaling to planting 8000 tress grown for 10 years. At the same time the energy spared by this initiatives can power 250 households for an entire year.

Keeping in mind the one key principle of METRO, i.e. Sustainability - we successfully inducted the “hand crafted basket” made out of palm leaves in the Fruits & Vegetables  section in collaboration with Star Farm (Metro Group owned Company).

These baskets are being procured through an NGO working with the name of “Go Green Pakistan” and are being made by women in rural Punjab.These baskets are organic and compostable.
