The Aldi North and Aldi South groups have joined the Business Environmental Performance Initiative (BEPI) to increase the sustainability of their supply chains. The move comes as the companies' bid to step up their efforts to reduce the chemical impact of their global supply chains’ operations. BEPI is an initiative by the Foreign Trade Association (FTA).
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.
