Aluminium is a truly “green metal”. It is lightweight, strong, non-corroding and easily formable into a wide range of products.
Aluminium only requires 5% of the original energy needed to smelt it from its ore to recycle it into second, third and many subsequent life products.
These lightweight properties mean that aluminium is a major enabler to the light weighting of transport to include cars and planes and as a result it makes a major contribution to carbon emission reduction in many sectors.
Aligned with our CN30 targets with GFG Alliance, we have opportunities to offset our carbon footprint against our natural capital, and our hydro scheme estate with peatland restoration, forestry and wider biodiversity projects.
