Aldi Ireland Appointed As One Of Ireland’s SDG Champions For 2024-25

Aldi Ireland has been named one of Ireland’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Champions for 2024-25.

The Minister of the Environment, Climate and Communications Eamon Ryan TD made the appointment at a ceremony at the Camden Court Hotel in Dublin.

Representatives from the 20 appointed Champion organisations attended the event, including Too Good To Go, the app fighting food waste and a partner of Aldi’s.

The SDG Champions Programme, spearheaded by the Irish government, is a testament to the early and proactive steps taken to create a more sustainable country on a national level.

As one of Ireland’s leading retailers, Aldi’s appointment is a reflection of the company’s ‘Better Everyday’ sustainability strategy, which aims to make sustainability affordable for all.


The retailer has said it is pleased to be recognised as a leader in the retail sector driving positive sustainable change.

As a result, it looks forward to working alongside the Department of Environment, Climate and Communications to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals in alignment with the 2030 Agenda in Ireland.

‘Play A Leading Role’

Announcing the appointments, Minister Ryan said, “The world is currently off track to achieve the SDGs, and accelerated action is needed.

“However, in this decade of action for the SDGs, Ireland is determined to play a leading role in delivering on the goals – locally, nationally and internationally.”

He concluded, “Over 90 organisations applied to take part in the programme this year, demonstrating the growing commitment of Irish society to live up to and promote the goals which have at their heart equality, access to basic rights, like clean water, clean energy, food and shelter for all, and climate justice.”
