Indirect energy consumption

Electricity and district heating consumption (in MWh)1

Electricity consumption at nearly 1,239,527 MWh is responsible for the most significant share of energy demand at our locations. It increased by around 10 per cent. The increase is due to several factors, including the integration of Leader Price in France, opening of new stores, and building expansions.

Greenhouse gas emissions Scope 1 and 2

Greenhouse gas emissions Scope 1 and 2 (in tonnes of CO2 equivalents)

Greenhouse gas emissions were calculated based on energy and fuel consumption and refrigerant losses. The calculation is carried out in accordance with the requirements of the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol using the DEFRA emission factors or GEMIS for emissions from the sourcing of district heating. In accordance with the GHG Protocol, Scope 2 emissions from electricity consumption have been calculated separately since 2019 by location-based and market-based emission factors. While the location-based method uses the factors for a specific geographical region (such as a country), a company’s individual electricity mix is used – wherever possible – for the market-based factors by way of the emissions actually generated by the energy producer. The calculation of location-based greenhouse gas emissions is based on the factors specified by the International Energy Agency (IEA).

Amount of waste

Amount of waste by type of waste (in metric tons)1

The most significant proportion of the waste generated was attributable to packaging waste. Hazardous waste, amounting to 1,582 metric tons, only made up 0.4 per cent of the total volume of waste. This includes used oil, oil filters, vehicle batteries and fluorescent tubes which contain mercury. From 2020 onwards, data was collected and reported internationally, including Poland from 2021. In previous years, data was only collected and reported for companies of ALDI Germany.

The scope of data is to be expanded and internationalised depending on availability in the years ahead.
3 Including incineration for energy recovery.

Water consumption

Water consumption (in cubic metres)1

The slightly increased consumption across countries in 2021 was due to several factors, including the opening of new stores, major leakages, water usage to comply with COVID-19 measures, and roof watering controlled by alarm sensors of the cooling system.
