METRO Deutschland and Real are among the first signatories to a joint declaration by trade and industry with the aim of strengthening sustainable fishing in the German seas. The declaration is an appeal to politicians: only if the Europe-wide landing obligation which will come into force at the beginning of 2019 is properly implemented and consistently monitored, fisheries and marine ecosystems in the North-East Atlantic, North Sea and Baltic Sea can benefit sustainably. The declaration for an effective implementation of the landing obligation was initiated by the WWF and is signed by 11 companies from trade and industry.
