BEPI aims to improve the environmental sustainability of global supply chains. Supply chain partners of Aldi will benefit from the chemical module, which offers participants common tools and industry-wide standards, such as those developed within the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals programme (ZDHC), of which BEPI is a contributor.
Aldi and its supply chain partners will also have access to BEPI’s full array of services, including: a broad range of monitoring tools that target 11 environmental performance areas, training and development activities for staff at all levels of the supply chain, and an intelligence dashboard with all relevant sustainability data maintained in one place. By joining BEPI, Aldi will be joining a network of industry peers dedicated to the improvement of supply chain environmental performance.
''The Foreign Trade Association welcomes Aldi as a participant of BEPI and praises their commitment towards tackling environmental challenges in their supply chains. The company is already an extremely valued and active member of our Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI), and adding our environmental initiative to its FTA membership has consolidated efforts towards a more complete approach to sustainability. We look forward to working with ALDI and following their improved performance," said Christian Ewert, FTA director general.
The two Aldi North and Aldi South groups headquartered in Essen and Mulheim an der Ruhr are among the leading retail companies in Germany and Europe.
By implementing BEPI’s bespoke Supply Chain Chemical Management Module, Aldi will be able to better work towards the goals set by the Greenpeace Detox commitments, such as eliminating potentially hazardous chemicals from its supply chains by 2020. The BEPI module provides the platform and tools necessary to communicate with producers at all tiers of the supply chain, target Aldi’s specific chemical management impacts and improve performance accordingly.
