ALDI SOUTH’s Progress Report 2018 for the UN Global Compact is published
The ALDI SOUTH Group reaffirms its support of the ten principles of the UNGC and continues to progress in the areas of human rights, labour rights, environmental protection and anti-corruption.
The United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) is a worldwide initiative, which encourages businesses to adopt sustainable and responsible business practices. In 2017, ALDI SOUTH was the first discount food retailer to join the UNGC. In doing so, we committed to implementing the ten principles as part of our corporate strategy and within the scope of our daily business operations.
The Progress Report is part of our transparent and open dialogue concerning our sustainability-related activities. In 2018, we successfully delivered projects and initiatives. However, we know that we are just at the beginning of our journey. We are currently revising our international corporate responsibility strategy to further integrate sustainability into our business. This strategy will focus on critical issues such as climate change, plastic and packaging reduction, the upholding of human rights and the efficient use of resources.
