... and our vision:
The best performance—for customers, retailers and employees
We demonstrate responsibility
Sustainability is firmly rooted in our corporate culture. Our strategy is based on four sustainability pillars: “green products”, “employees”, “energy, climate and environment” and “social engagement.
For the REWE Group, quality also means doing business in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. That is why we are developing and selling an ever increasing number of more sustainable products and services. Our green products also include regional and organic products. We provide our customers with additional guidance with our sustainable PRO PLANET label.
Our employees can count on fair and safe working conditions. The key issues for us as a responsible employer include, for example, company crèches, sabbaticals and flexible working time models.
As a major retail and tourism company, we actively contribute to protection of the climate and the environment. It is only by doing so that we can remain competitive. We are active in three main areas: Increasing energy efficiency, reducing emissions that impact the climate and conserving resources.
We are also aware of our social responsibility, and we take it seriously. We are involved in national and international charitable associations and organisations. For example, the REWE Group is involved in projects to ensure healthy nutrition in daycare centres and schools as well as local food bank initiatives. In the holiday and travel area, we campaign for “gentle tourism” and development projects in target regions.
If you would like to work with us to get things done, then apply for one of our positions with comprehensive training offerings, individual development opportunities, flexible working time models and occupational health benefits. We are always looking for go-getters, knowledge-seekers, innovation-drivers, inquisitive minds and mavericks.
