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


Endorsed by major global aluminium producers, MPP’s Aluminium Transition Strategy provides a shared vision for the industry’s low-carbon future, providing real economy milestones and detailing the industry, policy, and finance action required to get to net zero on a 1.5C-aligned pathway. It outlines, for example, that 40 additional low-carbon refineries and smelters would need to be online by 2030 to kick-off the transition to net zero in the 2030s and 2040s.
