Our CR Performance (2020)
- All wood and paper-based components contained in the product packaging of our ALDI own brand core range food and non-food products are to be produced from certified raw materials or recycled materials by the end of 2021.
- The total weight of our ALDI own brand product packaging shall be reduced by 15% in relation to sales by the end of 2025. Suppliers have to ensure that a minimum amount of material is used without compromising the product safety.
- All ALDI own brand product packaging have to be recyclable, compostable or reusable latest by the end of 2025.
- By 2025, we aim to have 30% recycled content in our own brand plastic packaging on average.
Additionally to our international goals highlighted above, some of our national organisations have even more ambitious targets in place.
The implementation of a new IT Infrastructure in some of our European marketplaces led to temporary reporting impediments, which influenced the group-wide performance figure.
COVID-19 led to postponing final production facility audits. As a consequence, the goal on paper-based product packaging has been expanded to the end of 2021.
