This takes courage

Spectacular technology, innovative development of natural resources in 
a global market, and the building of unique industrial communities and societies: that is how it is today, and that is how it was in the beginning. It has earned Hydro’s first two production sites in Telemark a place on the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List. Just as in our first 100 years, when our technology secured enough food for the world and laid the foundation for a whole new industry, so today we are developing more sustainable aluminium solutions to deal with one of the greatest challenges of our time: climate change. We are applying the world’s most energy-efficient production technology and regularly launching new, more climate-friendly products based on recycling and reuse – developed at our research centers and production facilities worldwide.

This takes courage.
