How We Are Reducing Our Environmental Impact

How it’s going

In 2020 we recycled nearly 300k tons of material and avoided greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to nearly 9 million gallons of gasoline per month.

In 2020 we donated more than 29 million pounds of product, saving it from landfills.

How it’s going

We currently purchase and produce enough renewable power each year to meet the company’s yearly total electricity use.

We installed solar panels on 111 stores and 12 distribution centers.

We installed our first wind turbine to power 40% of our 390,000-sq.-ft. distribution center in Dwight, IL.

100% of distribution centers and nearly 400 stores (and counting) are running on all-natural refrigerants.

How it's going

We will eliminate Styrofoam from all produce packaging by the end of 2021.

We reduced packaging to remove single-use plastic bags from 90% of apparel items.

We've never offered single-use plastic bags at checkout, a practice that ALDI estimates has helped keep 15 billion bags out of landfills and oceans.

How it’s going

100% of ALDI-exclusive seafood is now sourced from responsible fisheries and farms.

100% of ALDI-exclusive chocolate bars and chocolate confectionery are from sustainable sources.

100% of Barissimo and Simply Nature coffee will be sustainably sourced by 2022.

We’ve given back more than $2.5 Million to producer communities via Fair Trade USA Premiums since 2018.
