ESG Strategy


Engaging around environmental, social and governance issues has always been as important to us at the quality of our aluminum. That is why we are continuously evolving to be ever more sustainable—for the benefit of people, the planet, and ourselves.

In 2018 we implemented a strategy on sustainability, setting targets through 2030. In 2020, this strategy matured and evolved into an ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) model.

Doing our part in building a better future is not enough. We want to lead and point the way to inspire our employees, partners, customers and suppliers.

Sustainability is among the core pillars of our business. Learn more here.


Mandate: By 2030, deliver an offering of low-carbon aluminum products and sustainable solutions to the world’s
problems, while developing the regions where we operate and positively influencing
the end-to-end aluminum value chain.

Since our beginnings, we have been genuinely committed to making a positive impact on society and on the environment.

But we know that when it comes to sustainability there is no finish line. There’s always more to be done. And we are determined do it.


And we do

We think differently each day to create new solutions to today’s problems. As leaders, we recognize our responsibility to the market and to society. We know that our actions can have a major positive impact.

When we raise the bar, we start a chain reaction that drives transformations beyond our industry.

That is why our purpose goes beyond our company walls.

It’s not just about transforming our own way of doing business.

We want to increase awareness more broadly.

We want to inspire and engage our industry toward becoming more sustainable.

Because to us it only makes sense if we do it together.

Together with our employees, customers, suppliers, partners, communities and investors. A sustainable world is a more collaborative world.

We know that a better future can only exist if we all work together to make our world better and more sustainable today.
