International Position Statements
“The ALDI SOUTH Group conducts its business according to the principle of corporate responsibility. 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.
Our International Position Statements are intended to describe how we fulfil our international responsibility towards people and planet in different areas by means of our commitment and efforts. In this context, we focus on the essentials and work to develop simple and effective solutions to the complex questions and challenges faced. Each of the ALDI SOUTH countries is individually responsible for further developing and implementing this approach.
