ALDI continues to improve its performance against the already achieved 2020 GHG reduction target
We are aware of the significant impact we have on the climate and the environment - not only because of the products we sell, but also due to our operations. Our 2019 ‘Climate Protection Progress Report’ shows that every national market of the ALDI SOUTH Group has achieved the goal to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 30% per m2 of sales area by the end of 2020.
Company Carbon Footprint
In accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, we have been monitoring our progress by calculating our Company Carbon Footprint for all of our business processes and locations since 2012.
The individual country’s GHG emission reductions range from -38% to -73% and we are proud to continue with a good performance after already having achieved our target in 2018, two years ahead of time.
In 2019, the ALDI SOUTH Group already had a 90% group-wide use of green electricity. With Australia committing to 100% renewable electricity from 2021, the share of green electricity used will continue to increase.
