Our approach

To contribute to solving our common global challenges, we need to produce and consume in new ways. Our ambition is to contribute to creating a fair society and circular economy. We will do this by producing and sourcing responsibly, offering zero-carbon aluminium, circular solutions and more renewable energy. Hydro has set an ambition of net zero by 2050 and we have concrete actions and plans today for how to work to meet this goal.
