ALDI SOUTH and the UN's Sustainable Development Goals

On 1 January 2016, the 17 goals for sustainable development (Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs) of the United Nations became effective with the publication of the United Nations Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. The aim of these goals is to improve sustainable development at economic, social, and ecological level by 2030. Companies are requested to be involved in the implementation of these global goals. The ALDI SOUTH Group is aware of its responsibility in this area and describes the measures taken in order to achieve these goals within the CR Report 2017.
