The Aluminium Federation (ALFED) Annual Sustainability Strategy Day, held on June 6th, proved to be an insightful and engaging event, with more than 100 ALFED Members and industry representatives in attendance.

Hosted by ALFED, the event aimed to provide a platform for industry stakeholders to collaborate on strategies for driving positive change in the aluminium supply chain.

Despite the absence of government representatives due to the pre-election period, attendees remained undeterred, demonstrating a commitment to advancing sustainability initiatives within the industry.

The event kicked off with the announcement of the UK Aluminium Manifesto, a document devised by ALFED to outline key priorities for the next UK Government in supporting the aluminium manufacturing and processing sector. This manifesto underscores the vital role of aluminium in driving economic growth, sustainability, and energy security, reaffirming ALFED’s commitment to advocating for policies that support industry growth and sustainability.

The event also featured a keynote address by Dr. Mark Jones of BCAST at Brunel University, who discussed the importance of securing a resilient, low carbon aluminium supply in the UK to support net-zero manufacturing. Dr. Jones’s insights highlighted the collaborative efforts already underway to address onshoring and green investment challenges within the industry.

Further presentations throughout the day also enabled attendees to gain a clearer understanding around carbon accounting, the final requirements for the UK CBAM consultation, green financing opportunities and funding, the UK Emissions Trading Scheme, and developments in energy procurement and sourcing.

The event provided valuable networking opportunities, allowing attendees to connect with industry peers and explore initiatives such as the ALFED ESGC training course and find out more about the upcoming EPD and LCA day in collaboration with Innoval Technology Ltd.

Overall, the ALFED Annual Sustainability Strategy Day proved to be a successful forum for fostering collaboration and driving positive change within the aluminium industry. Despite challenges, attendees demonstrated a collective commitment to advancing sustainability initiatives and shaping the future of the industry.
