CR Principles

The ALDI SOUTH Group of Companies conducts its business according to the principle of corporate responsibility. This document describes how we apply this principle throughout the areas of our business operations: Customers, Supply Chain, People, Community, Environment. In addition, we define our understanding of integrity in the ALDI Code of Conduct and our principles of personnel management in the ALDI Management System (AMS).


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.

Implementation and Accountability

The CR Principles apply to all employees. All companies of the ALDI SOUTH Group ensure adherence to these principles by setting specific goals and implementing adequate measures. We regularly report on our CR performance, both internally and to the public.
