INTRODUCTION

The Metropolitan Group is a privately owned business known throughout Sri Lanka as being the leader in workplace solutions sector. For 54 years, Metropolitan has remained true to its values, mission and vision, the latter which is ‘A Metropolitan solution in every workplace'. Over the last year, Metropolitan realized that workplace solutions and equipment that exceeds their lifetime needs to be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner. A failure to do this in a managed and guided manner would cause damage to the environment through their hazardous chemicals, gases, metals and other material. With this in mind, Metropolitan initiated an Eco Office project.

CSR Policy

AS a leading corporate citizen, social responsibility towards the people and the planet we live in is a core in our daily operations. We endorse the practice of 'complete solutions’ by ensuring that our products and equipment are safely disposed once their lifetime is completed. In our role of leadership in the workplace solutions industry, the Group’s CSR ‘EcoOffice’ project, vision for sustainability is simply to ensure safer and healthier working environments for all generations.
