About the company

Aldi opened its first stores in Ireland in 1999 and has been the fastest growing supermarket in Ireland for most of the last ten years. It employs 3,200 people through its national network of 130 stores and two Regional Distribution Centres. Emphasising Aldi’s commitment to pursuing sustainable business practices, Aldi has signed up to the Origin Green sustainability charter and developed a comprehensive sustainability plan that sets out targets in areas such as sustainable sourcing, health and nutrition, social responsibility, waste emissions and energy.

“At Aldi we have a long-standing awareness of our responsibility to the environment and to reducing our environmental footprint. Sustainability is an increasingly important aspect of doing business, particularly in the production of food and drink. We have set ourselves 55 sizeable targets that will raise the standards right across our business and ensure sustainability remains at the forefront of our business for many years.” Giles Hurley, CEO Aldi UK and Ireland
