Hydro worldwide and the Benelux organization clearly set the course when it comes to sustainability a few years ago. There are three main focus areas within sustainability that Hydro prioritizes: climate, environment and social responsibility.
As a leading company in the aluminum sector, it is our goal to lead the industry in sustainability as well. We are in the unique position of housing recycling facilities, extrusion plants and finished products. This means we can influence our value chain and be transparent to our stakeholders and customers.
The overarching umbrella of our 2030 climate strategy is based on 3 pillars: greener procurement, greener production and greener products. We have set specific goals when it comes to sustainably sourcing the metal we buy and reducing energy consumption for our operations. We aim to reduce emissions, waste and consumption of natural resources, as well as increase the recycled content of our material and improve the recyclability of our products.
Finally, we want to help our customers improve the sustainable offerings of their products. And to back up what we claim, we back up everything we do with labels and certifications that have been independently verified.
