CR strategy

“Simplicity and responsibility are core values of ALDI SOUTH. Our business model is simple: great quality at the best price, fair and honest product offers, and efficient business processes. In all we do, we assume responsibility towards our customers, business partners, employees, the community, and the environment. Our CR Principles summarise our commitments to people and planet. They guide all of us in our day-to-day actions and are a strict requirement of our business partners.”

CR Principles

The companies of the ALDI SOUTH Group are committed to the principles of corporate responsibility (CR). We focus on the essentials and on achieving the greatest possible impact. Concretely, this means that we

  1. analyse the impact of our business operations on our community and the environment,
  2. identify topics and effective approaches,
  3. set measurable goals,
  4. plan and implement effective measures, and
  5. monitor implementation and adjust measures as required.

CR Principles

In 2010, ALDI SOUTH established a set of international CR Principles, which were last revised in 2015. These principles define our understanding of responsibility towards people and planet. They guide us in our day-to-day actions and are a strict requirement of our business partners. The CR Principles describe our approach in the five key areas of action: Customers, Supply chain, People, Community, and Environment.
