Our Vision 2030

We will make sustainability affordable to our customers.

The ALDI SOUTH Group prides itself in making quality products available to its customers at the right price. As a responsible business, we continue to evolve our commitments to our customers, employees, business partners, the community, and the environment, not because it is what society expects of us, but because it is the right thing to do.

Our new vision for 2030 focuses on the social and environmental problems where we can use our business influence to create the most positive impact on people and the planet. 

With the knowledge that our range of great products are responsibly sourced, customers will experience our vision of ‘making sustainability affordable’, at every shop. 

Our global CR Strategy consists of four international focus areas – human rights, resource efficiency, zero carbon, and employer of choice - and is complemented by additional national focus areas, which concentrate on giving all customers access to healthy products and supporting local communities through charity partnerships. Together, these activities contribute to our vision of making sustainability affordable to every customer.

Human Rights: Using our buying power to respect human rights

We are committed to respecting human rights and improving living and working conditions throughout our supply chains. Our commitment encompasses any adverse impact on human rights that we might cause, contribute to or are directly linked to.

In order to make a real difference, we have established a wide range of partnerships with organisations including suppliers, manufacturers, retailers, governments, and NGOs. Together we can improve the lives of workers and their families in many different ways; these include promoting better working and living conditions for workers and their families, paying a fair wage, empowering women, clamping down on child labour and increasing the transparency in our supply chains.

Resource Efficiency: Using resources wisely and protecting ecosystems

Sustainable buying practices are essential for the long-term success of our business. We are responsible for all activities within our supply chains and for the resources used in the production of our products. Together with our business partners, we will work towards increasing transparency and continuous improvement within supply chains.

We will reduce food waste across our business and make other operational waste reusable or recyclable. We will reduce our own-brand product packaging weight and make the packaging we use 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable.

We will provide a range of high quality, sustainable products to our customers. Our aspiration is that our products are made in a sustainable way, and that we consider environmental and social criteria in our global supply chains - from raw materials to final production.

Zero Carbon: Doing our part to limit global warming

Our business activities have a significant impact on climate and the environment. This is a result not only of the products we sell, but also of our entire business operations. Our goal is to minimise the ecological footprint of our corporate activities by lowering our greenhouse gas emissions and ensuring that the products we offer do not have a detrimental impact on the environment.

As part of our wider commitment to minimise the impact of our products, we will also work with our business partners to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and promote climate protection projects in our supply chains.
