En+ Group sustainability report sets new targets

En+ Group sustainability report sets new targets

(Posted on 20/07/21)

En+ Group, the world’s largest producer of low carbon aluminium, has published its 2020 Sustainability Report. The report details achievements over the 12 months to 31 December 2020, tracks progress of ongoing initiatives and programmes, and sets out significant short-term sustainability targets and long-term ambitions.

In addition to restating En+ Group’s ongoing commitment to continuous ESG performance improvement, the report also outlines two industry leading developments announced in early 2021: the development of the world’s lowest carbon aluminium from inert anode technologies; and the Company’s stated ambition to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

2020 Group’s highlights includes a Carbon Disclosure Project rating of ‘A-‘ for the metals segment, a first for the aluminium industry, and establishing us as one of the 160 leading CDP companies out of more than 4,800 participants committed to reducing climate risk throughout the entire supply chain.

Lord Barker, Executive Chairman of En+ Group, said, “I am proud of the clear and wide-ranging ESG progress that we made in 2020, especially given the extraordinarily challenging operating conditions created by the pandemic. However that did not stop us continuing to drive forward our ambitious sustainability mission and preparing the ground for the two most significant announcements we have ever made in relation to our sustainability performance: our industry-leading targets for greenhouse gas emissions reduction, with a clear ambition of achieving net zero emissions by 2050; and the success of our new-generation inert anode electrolysers allowing us to produce the lowest carbon aluminium ever created.

“As the world’s largest producer of low carbon aluminium, En+ Group’s commitments and achievements are fundamental to the transformation of the wider industry. We are determined to continue to lead our sector to a greener, and ultimately net zero, future.”

Vladimir Kiryukhin, CEO of En+ Group, said, “Much has been written about the impact of the pandemic on families, communities and businesses around the world. Our 2020 Sustainability Report details En+ Group’s response to the challenges we faced. I am proud of the Company’s commitment to the health and wellbeing of its people, past and present, and humbled by the dedication shown by our employees across the world. Most notable was the commitment shown by workers at our hydropower plants and smelters, many of whom volunteered to isolate themselves from their families and friends, often for weeks at a time, to maintain the steady supply of renewable energy that homes and businesses across Siberia rely upon. Their selflessness at such a critical time was essential for millions of people”.

The report has been prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative Sustainability Reporting Standards. It aims to provide transparency around the Group’s 2020 achievements and highlights areas for improvement. It includes in-depth disclosure of non-financial information pertaining to material ESG issues.
