Sustainability as a principle for action
Aluminium is green
Responsibility for people and the environment
We take responsibility for our actions towards our employees, business partners, authorities and neighbours, as well as towards the environment. Here, we focus on clear values and principles. In this way, we follow defined processes and a continuous process of improvement.
For us, sustainability starts with procuring the valuable resource of aluminium. We have selected our global suppliers according to strict criteria.
Sustainability criteria for raw material supplies
- The manufacture of primary aluminium using hydro power and geothermal energy with the objective of further minimising the CO2 emissions in the manufacturing process and in our products
- Recycling secondary aluminium to manufacture billets in plants close to our production locations, with the goal of low energy consumption and short transport routes.
- Security of supply
- Competence in the research and development of raw materials for specific areas of application.
- Certification for sustainability aspects (ASI / cradle to cradle)
