Managing impacts from our value chain is central to taking sustainability beyond our company walls. Large organizations have real opportunities to influence change at different links in the value chain. This can have a multiplying effect, creating benefits for the business, society and the planet in a virtuous cycle of collaboration for sustainability.

Sustainable Procurement

Engaging with our suppliers around ESG helps to reduce exposure to business risks and is an important way to drive sustainability beyond the fence line. We believe a sustainable supply chain is one where all players address their own future needs while also expanding their focus across broader economic, social, ethical and environmental aspects.

Sustainable Solutions for Customers

Societal and market expectations around product sustainability are becoming increasingly demanding. Aluminum offers uniquely vast possibilities in key industries—from automotive through building and construction to packaging and energy. Meanwhile, innovation and industry 4.0 are helping to connect B2B segments to companies’ increasingly agile and digital operations. This is creating new patterns of interaction among companies and their business partners. At CBA, our Market Development and Innovation department drives new market and product development through short-, medium- and long-term projects that support customers’ sustainability aspirations.

Our 2030 Goal

  • Achieve an average rating of 4 for our third-party-audited Compliance Program*

*Currently based on KMPG methodology.

What we’re doing

CBA believes that, in order to achieve this goal, we must build on our ongoing internal efforts by implementing action plans recommended in audits. Externally, we have expanded the mechanisms in place to identify risks in the value chain, and have helped our suppliers to further develop their corporate governance practices. 

ESG Ownership

At CBA we believe that broad stakeholder engagement is an essential part of a successful ESG strategy. In addition, the role our leadership team plays in championing our aspirations helps to infuse our culture across the organization. CBA recognizes that alignment with ESG practices supports greater profitability, access to better markets, a stronger reputation, and the ability to attract, retain and develop talents.

ESG Communications

Society is increasingly demanding transparency. In a business context, transparency has become all the more important for organizations that are publicly dedicated to ESG. Enhancing internal and external visibility and ensuring reliable information is available about good practices, results, challenges and long-term goals has become essential for companies seeking to embrace sustainable practices. At CBA, ESG communications provide more than just reputational benefits—they are strategic in our ambition to influence people and lead in sustainability.

Our 2030 Goal

  • Achieve a RepTrak® Score greater than 80 In reputation surveys.

What we’re doing

CBA’s biggest communication challenge over the coming years will be to share information with stakeholders about the different ESG projects that will help us to achieve our goal of leading in sustainability. We want our stakeholders to recognize their role in meeting this ambition. CBA has identified dozens of initiatives that we will implement through 2025 to engage the organization around the CBA 4.0 journey, with each level of the organization playing a role in this digital network. We also want to create additional avenues for communication with external stakeholders. We will implement new digital channels for stakeholder engagement, with more intimate, transparent and inspiring messaging.
