7. Control

The company states how and what performance indicators related to sustainability are used in its regular internal planning and control processes. It discloses how suitable processes ensure reliability, comparability and consistency of the data used for internal management and external communication.

In order to assess the success of our strategies and measures, we record economically, socially and ecologically relevant key figures. Product-related key figures in particular help us to monitor the progress of our product changes. The targets for the conversion of raw materials are defined in our purchasing policies and in our CR Programme.  

Our selection of key figures is based on meaningful reporting standards such as the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).  

The legally independent companies form the ALDI North Group, which is the subject of the report. Deviations in individual performance indicators or content are indicated as necessary. We report, where possible, over three years. Selected content and performance indicators for the year 2017 were the subject of an assurance engagement by the independent audit firm Flottmeyer • Steghaus + Partner.
