“Aldi Süd seeks to become first major climate-neutral retailer in Germany”

Aldi Süd

Aldi Süd will become Germany's first major climate-neutral food retailer from January 2017, the company announced in a press release. Aldi Süd uses up to 80 percent of electricity from its solar PV facilities and will acquire the remaining power needed solely from Green electricity, starting next year. Other greenhouse gas emissions will be compensated through certified climate protection projects, says the press release.
