The release of the "Guidelines for sustainable Business Practices" intensifies the activities of the REWE Group in the field of environmental sustainability. The 27-page publication released on january 24th, 2011, documents the values the company stands for and describes how the REWE Group business relationships should be characterised with respect to environment and society.
The objective is to work with the contract suppliers to expand the REWE Group corporate principle of "We are aware of our responsibility and act sustainably" to cover the entire length of the supply chain. The Guidelines, which will also be made available on the Internet, are addressed to employees, customers, political institutions and the interested public as well as the contract partners of the REWE Group.
The Guidelines are divided into three main sections: "Responsable action", "Labour and Social Standards" and "Environmental and Animal Protection". Sixteen chapters concretise various topics such as the general prohibition of corruption, fairness in competition, prohibition of forced and child labour, prohibition of discrimination or health protection on the job, protection of climate, resources and animals, a commitment to protection of species and biodiversity and responsibility for consumer interests.
