Sun on the roof – ALDI Portugal

Sun on the roof – ALDI Portugal – Sustainability at ALDI North

ALDI Portugal operates 57 stores in the westernmost corner of continental Europe. When it comes to photovoltaic electricity, ALDI Portugal is at the forefront. Social commitment also plays a special role here.

From the Algarve to the northern reaches of the country, ALDI Portugal supports the needy at many locations through food and non-food donations. This local approach is especially important to us. It underscores the connection between ALDI Portugal, its employees and the local population. We are constantly adapting the shopping experience to customers’ needs to increase our market penetration in Portugal. Customer communication is one of the cornerstones of our efforts. In our customer magazine ALDI aktuell, we regularly provide information about a variety of sustainability topics. Furthermore, a growing number of stores are receiving a fresh look. By the end of 2018, most stores will feature our latest design. Even today, stores are already generating their own electricity – thanks to the Portuguese sun.

Our highlights

14

photovoltaic systems

The photovoltaic systems on 14 of our stores allow us to generate some 1,000 MWh of electricity – roughly the amount consumed by 250 households every year. ALDI Portugal plans to install an additional 5,000 kWp in output by 2021.

fresh meat from Portugal

Beef from the Azores, plus pork, chicken and turkey from mainland Portugal: to make it easy for our customers to trace their origins, we started rolling out the ALDI Transparency Code  (ATC) for these products in 2017.
