Simply Responsible

CR Principles

ALDI Social Standards

Simplicity, Consistency, Responsibility – these are our core values. Our business model is simple: great quality at the best price, fair and honest product offers, and efficient business processes. As a reliable partner, we are true to our word. In all we do, we assume responsibility towards our customers, business partners, employees, the community, and the environment.

Our Corporate Responsibility (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.

Vision 2030

Vision 2030The ALDI SOUTH Group has always prided itself in making quality products available to its customers at the right price. Through our Vision 2030 of ‘making sustainability affordable’, we will continue to give our customers access to great products, and will reassure them that they have been responsibly sourced.

We do not do this because it is what society expects of us, but because it is the right thing to do. By addressing social and environmental problems where they are most pressing, we can use our influence to have the greatest impact on people and the planet.

Objectives & Performance

As a global retailer, we want to use our global buying power and market influence to create lasting change for a better future. We focus our activities on high-priority raw materials and commodity groups.
