Our 2030 Vision.
Looking toward the future, we’re setting ambitious, science-based goals to help support the planet. These purposeful goals aim to balance affordability while making progress toward sustainability. These are important steps in building stronger communities and lowering our impact on the environment.
Progress in packaging: Reduced our use of plastic and increased the recyclability of our packaging so more than 62% of ALDI-exclusive packaging is now reusable, recyclable or compostable. Eliminating all plastic shopping bags from stores by the end of 2023.
Cut our carbon: Continued to purchase green electricity to cover 100% of our energy consumption. Transitioned to environmentally friendly refrigerants in nearly 500 stores.
Think beyond the bin: Donated over 32 million pounds of food through our partnership with Feeding America and 72 thousand pounds of household products through our partnership with Good360.
Sourcing responsibly: Currently, 53% of everyday ALDI coffee products come from sustainable sources.
“ In 2021, we set ambitious, science-based sustainability goals to help us accelerate the positive impact we’re already making on our planet’s resources and the people who depend on them. We take a lot of pride in the progress we’ve made toward these goals, while also maintaining the affordability of our products so you can be more sustainable too.”
