The European aluminium industry is committed to the responsible stewardship throughout the life cycle.
In the last 20 years we have looked beyond mere compliance with environmental requirements, through smart product development and improved environmental performance. The results are testified by the evolution of various Sustainable Development Indicators, regularly monitored.
Looking to the future, our industry has set a number of voluntary targets to ensure, among others, the correct management of the production and transformation processes in view of safeguarding the environment.
These voluntary targets are in line with the legislative provisions either already in place or under developments (below a few relevant examples), with the aim to create synergies and partnerships with the concerned stakeholders.
