Becoming energy efficient is an amazing task itself but to maintain it over years and years is the real achievement. Find out how well we’re doing with our energy use and how we’re using opportunities to do better in store.
We are committed to achieving net zero carbon in our operations by 2035, as well as improving our energy efficiency at every Aldi Store, RDC and Office.
Since 2017, our Energy Optimisation Project has sought to identify opportunities to save energy across our estate. Through improvements in the use of lighting, refrigeration, heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and small power, we have managed to save a massive 10.8 million kWh of electricity. That’s enough to power 2700 homes for a year!Now that’s #EverydayAmazing!
It’s not only the look and feel of our stores that have been getting an upgrade, but our technology too! All new and refurbished stores will have more efficient LED lighting throughout the sales area, including in chillers and chest freezers. LED lighting uses up to 60% less energy than older traditional lighting.
