Aluminium for Climate

We are working to put the aluminium industry on a path to net-zero emissions by midcentury by collaborating with critical stakeholders across the value chain—and the globe. We are creating realistic pathways that accelerate the use of zero-carbon production technologies, increase access to fossil-free energy and grow demand for clean products.

Our Approach

The Aluminium for Climate initiative is driving efforts to substantially reduce industry emissions by:

  • Decarbonising electricity consumption in aluminium manufacturing
  • Decarbonising direct emissions from aluminium processing
  • Increasing the recycling of aluminium scrap

Our goals

  • Build a larger, more geographically diverse coalition
  • Demonstrate the feasibility of low-cost power decarbonisation over the next 10–15 years across key regions
  • Identify the additional policy and financial enablers required to accelerate power decarbonisation for aluminium production
  • Develop a better understanding of how to unlock the deployment of low-carbon production technologies
