In line with the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth), Metro is committed to proactively identifying and addressing modern slavery risks in our business operations and supply chain.
Metro’s Modern Slavery Statement 2022/23 outlines the actions we have taken to identify and mitigate modern slavery risks occurring in our business operations and supply chain.
Metro is committed to providing a safe, respectful, and ethical environment for our employees, contractors, passengers and visitors. To foster this environment, Metro employees are required to follow our code of conduct in their daily duties.
At Metro, we care about the way our suppliers do business with us. We seek to engage suppliers who share our values and commitment to sustainable Victorian social businesses, aboriginal businesses, women’s equality and safety and businesses which demonstrate environmentally sustainable business practices.

Metro is committed to avoiding situations of impropriety, bias and abuse of authority that may arise, or be perceived to arise, from an employee or contractor:
Metro employees and contractors have ongoing obligations to declare any perceived or actual conflict of interest that may arise from such situations. We encourage our employees and contractors to make a declaration if they are unsure if a conflict exists.
Metro has zero tolerance for any behaviours or actions that compromise our commitment to safety and integrity. We have a dedicated Whistleblower Procedure which encourages anyone to speak up if they become aware of any potential misconduct relating to Metro.
If you know or suspect Metro, or an employee, officer, or supplier of Metro, of misconduct, you can report this to the Head of Internal Audit & Enterprise Risk.
Misconduct can include breach of law or information that indicates a danger to the public or to the financial system.
