COVID-19: Supporting the engine of the UK economy

The vital role of aluminium during the COVID- pandemic

Aluminium is a critical component for supply chains essential to managing COVID-19, including medical supplies, electricity transmission, building materials and sterile packaging. As a result, aluminium sector operations have had to continue in a safe yet productive manner.

We’ve been an important Government partner when it comes to mitigating the effects of coronavirus on industry. And we’ve had remarkable success helping the aluminium sector negotiate these challenging circumstances. In fact, we’ve had 34 members join this year, reflecting the quality of support we’re offering.

We were on the Government’s consultative committee for safe working guidelines, ensuring social distancing and other new health and safety measures are effective and workable. And, through our weekly meetings with BEIS, our members have remained highly engaged in helping Government understand different trade-offs and financial support requirements.
