Aluminium is a lightweight and endlessly recyclable material and it is a key contributor to the low-carbon economy. Its role will continue to expand, from replacing single-use plastics to supporting more sustainable transport. Therefore, the aluminium sector is key to the Government’s green growth strategy and carbon neutral vision.
We are helping Government formulate an ambitious yet viable green agenda for industry. Working with Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), we are contributing to a clear, consistent strategic plan that brings together the many green strategies already developed. We are advising on a roadmap that ensures organisations have guidance, support and incentives to achieve the UK’s many green growth objectives.
Going forward, the aluminium industry looks to be a flexible, cost-effective and sustainable partner within upstream and downstream supply chains. And we look to develop new technologies and processes that promote a more competitive and low-carbon UK industrial base. From training and knowledge sharing to collaborating with Government and wider industry, we are helping members and stakeholders find the best solutions for the future.
