Sustainability

For us, sustainability is a prerequisite for Sustainable Development and also a factor in achieving stability and success. The implementation of responsible operating practices is our strategic choice, emphasising and focusing our attention over time on material issues and crucial pillars of corporate responsibility. We strive for a target of zero incidents by constantly improving our workplace while also taking care of minimising our environmental footprint. We build long-term relationships of trust with our customers and partners and we are always on their side supporting the needs of the local communities where we operate.

Aluminium is one of the most recycled materials worldwide. The important properties of aluminium, coupled with its numerous applications in modern society, make it a ‘green’ metal. Aluminium recycling is a particularly important and vital practice for Sustainable Development, since it helps greatly, in saving natural resources and energy.
