13. Climate action
Lidl commits to Science Based Targets to avoid Climate Change. We work on reducing our emissions on Scope 1 and 2 (buildings, energy efficiency, renewable energy) and on Scope 3 (transport, employee commuting, purchased goods and services).
1. End poverty
By working with sustainable standards such as Fairtrade, we help in some regions reduce extreme poverty.
2. End hunger
By working with e.g. small holders (through our collaboration with sustainable standards such as Fairtrade or FSC) we help, eradicate hunger in the South. In the North we do this through partnering with OCMWs and Food Banks.
3. Good health
Lidl is running large scale projects in China and Bangladesh, together with GiZ, improving the health conditions of the employees of our suppliers. We also work on reducing toxic chemicals in the supply chain, through our involvement in the Detox campaign of Greenpeace.
4. Quality education
We have commitments around collaboration with schools, to improve the competences of youth. Through our collaboration with NGOs in the south, we also help building educational infrastructures.
5. Gender equality
Lidl has specific policies on gender, through our Diversity and Inclusion commitment.
