Our Roadmap to making sustainability affordable to our customers by 2030

With its “Roadmap to Vision 2030”, the ALDI SOUTH Group has set itself ambitious and long-term objectives in the areas of human rights, resource efficiency and zero carbon.

“Making sustainability affordable to our customers”; this ambitious vision is at the heart of ALDI’s new global Corporate Responsibility Strategy. The “Roadmap to Vision 2030” defines the actions that will guide the day-to-day implementation of the strategy. Just like the strategy, the Roadmap will report ALDI’s progress against global sustainability issues.
