Hydro 4.0™ – warranting a low-carbon footprint
Producing primary aluminium with some of the lowest carbon footprint in the world, we want to make sure that this attractive metal is made available to consumers who care about sustainability.
This hydropower-based aluminium has a maximum carbon footprint of 4.0 kg CO2 per kg aluminium. It is certified by DNV GL according to ISO 14064, covering all carbon emissions from bauxite mining and alumina refining to the production of aluminium in electrolysis and casting.
Hydro 4.0™ is available in all grades and forms from our Norwegian aluminium plants:
- Extrusion ingots
- Foundry alloys
- Sheet ingots
- Wire rod
We believe that when our customers’ environmental footprint shrinks, their future opportunities expand. Therefore, we certify that dedicated parts of our production hold the highest standard in the world – also in a climate perspective.
