Circular Economy

Boosting resource efficiency and decarbonisation

Aluminium is a frontrunner of the circular economy. Being fully recyclable, our material keeps its original properties no matter how many times it is processed. Moreover, aluminium recycling allows us to reduce energy consumption by 95% compared to primary aluminum production, representing a clear environmental benefit. So by recycling, we are reducing our own carbon footprint and the carbon footprint of key sectors such as building & construction, mobility, and packaging.

We are proud that we are already achieving recycling rates of up to 90%, but to unleash the full potential of the circular economy, we need to improve the legislative conditions for collecting and sorting waste. This includes design for recycling, dedicated collection systems, better sorting and pre-treatment technologies, and more stringent criteria for shipping waste outside of Europe.
