Key figures

Using selected key performance indicators (KPIs) in the areas of Company, Customers, Supply chain, People, Community, and Environment, we provide information on the effectiveness of our actions whilst highlighting areas where we are already making strong progress as well as other areas where further action is still required.

Together with the materiality analysis conducted within the scope of the International Corporate Responsibility Report 2017, selected KPIs for the reporting year 2017 were verified by the auditing firm KPMG AG. The corresponding audit certificate issued by KPMG AG can be accessed here

Selected KPIs from the International Corporate Responsibility Report 2015, together with the GHG balance and the Company Carbon Footprints for the years 2012, 2014, and 2016, were verified by the auditing firm PricewaterhouseCoopers AG. The audit certificate issued by PricewaterhouseCoopers AG can be accessed here

Deviations compared to previous reports 

Important criteria in selecting the KPIs to be reported are our materiality analysis as well as the relevance of these KPIs for managing our internal processes. For this reason, several KPIs are no longer reported for 2017. At the same time, there are KPIs which are included for the first time, some of them even retrospectively for previous reporting years (such as KPIs regarding GHG emissions). Compared to the report for 2015 and the update for 2016, we have introduced 29 additional KPIs for 2017. In several cases, the report for 2017 specifies figures for the individual ALDI SOUTH national organisations in addition to the figures which apply to the ALDI SOUTH Group as a whole.

For some KPIs, the underlying definitions and/or methods of data collection have been modified compared to previous years. As a result, some figures deviate from the figures reported in previous years.
