En+ Group is being recognized for its efforts to raise awareness around low-carbon aluminium and disclosure rules on emissions.
The awards honour businesses, policies, projects, and concepts that are actively engaged and deeply committed to systemic change when it comes to the climate crisis, social injustice, or economic inequality.
‘’We are delighted to receive this recognition for our efforts to raise awareness of the climate-beating potential of low-carbon aluminium. Our world is at a critical turning point and En+ Group firmly believes that when we pull away from the tragedy of COVID-19, we must double down on the other great existential risk of our time, dangerous man-made climate change. The good news is there are plenty of practical actions that businesses can take now to make progress. In our sector, which has the potential to be such a force for good, that has to start with all producers of this important metal disclosing the carbon content of the aluminium they produce.”
