A more collaborative world.
That’s what sustainability means to CBA.
At CBA we believe our business is more than just about aluminium—it’s about the way that, through aluminium, we can create and share value with the world in an ethical and healthy manner. Ours is a time of profound change, marked by social and environmental challenges that are requiring companies, their stakeholders, governments, the third sector and broader society to work together in taking care of people and our planet.
Recognizing this responsibility, we have long chosen the path of sustainability, and in the course of our journey we have come to understand that sustainability needs to be embedded in each of our decisions. We have also learned that sustainability requires an essentially collaborative mindset. This is why we have decided to not only transform our own business, but to take a leading role more broadly in building a better society. We want to help point the way and engage our stakeholders and the wider market in this journey.
To achieve this ambition, as expressed in our Manifesto, we have put sustainability at the very heart of our strategy. In addition to adopting and supporting the ten principles of the UN’s 2030 Agenda and the Global Compact—the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative around human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption—we have strengthened our ESG culture by committing to a set of environmental, social and governance goals to be achieved by 2030.
As part of our efforts to drive efficiencies and investments in innovation, we will continue to develop increasingly low-carbon aluminum products and sustainable solutions to the world’s challenges. Another core part of our proposition is helping to develop the regions where we operate and positively influencing the end-to-end aluminum value chain.
That’s what sustainability means to CBA.
Since our beginnings, we have been genuinely committed to making a positive impact on society and on the environment. But we know that when it comes to sustainability there is no finish line.
As leaders, we recognize our responsibility to the market and to society. We know that our actions can have a major positive impact. When we raise the bar, we start a chain reaction that drives transformations beyond our industry. That is why our purpose goes beyond our company walls. It’s not just about transforming our own way of doing business. We want to increase awareness more broadly.
We want to inspire and engage our industry toward becoming more sustainable. Because to us it only makes sense if we do it together. Together with our employees, customers, suppliers, partners, communities and investors. A sustainable world is a more collaborative world. We know that a better future can only exist if we all work together to make our world better and more sustainable today.
CBA’s ESG Strategy 2030 translates our decision to embed environmental, social and governance factors in our core business into actions that are aligned with global trends in business sustainability.
Our 2030 goals will be achieved through a set of initiatives across 15 programs, grouped into 10 levers—4 in the environmental pillar, 2 in the social pillar, 3 in the governance pillar, and 1 cross-cutting lever spanning all business areas.
By 2030, deliver an offering of low-carbon aluminum products and sustainable solutions to the world’s problems, while developing the regions where we operate and positively influencing the end-to-end aluminum value chain.
Our certifications to the highest global standards, and our collaborations with prestigious organizations specializing in sustainability, inspire us to achieve further progress on our ESG strategy.
