Ethical Working Conditions

Aldi works with suppliers to ensure safe and fair working conditions. Many of our products are grown and manufactured in countries where social and environmental standards can be below acceptable norms. But Aldi is committed to human rights and fair labour practices throughout its supply chain. Together with our business partners, we strive to establish and maintain social and environmental compliance standards for our supply chain, to ensure the people who make our products are treated fairly.

Aldi’s Social Standards in Production are part of our Terms and Conditions and define our commitment to human rights and fair labour standards. Our Social Standards in Production are based on the following international standards: 

·         The UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights

·         The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

·         The UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women

·         The International Labour (ILO) Conventions

·         The OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises 

We expect all our business partners to adhere to these standards and have introduced additional requirements, which go beyond this minimum, which also form part of the contractual relationship. Our business partners, in turn, are expected to apply them to all suppliers along the entire production process.
