Goal 13: Climate action

For the last decade, addressing climate change has been our number one sustainability focus. As one of the world’s leading aluminium producers, RUSAL has put environmental protection at the heart of the business; its Climate Agenda is an integral part of its culture and drives activity across the company. The carbon footprint of RUSAL is one of the lowest in the industry thanks to renewable energy generated by our hydropower plants in Siberia. Across all En+ Group operations throughout the world, we abide by the Paris Convention and have set clear commitments to reduce our carbon emissions.

In 2007, we launched the Safe Future Strategy to reduce the impact of our operations on air quality and minimise the impact on climate. With a wide range of initiatives under this strategy, we were able to reduce the level of direct GHG emissions from our aluminium smelters by 53% between 1990 and 2014, 3% over (and a year ahead of) our commitment target.
