Environmental Improvement Plans
Alcoa is committed to the highest standards of environmental performance. We have taken a voluntary global leadership position on addressing climate change and are reducing greenhouse emissions through energy efficiency, productivity improvements and technological innovation.
In line with this global commitment, Alcoa releases Environmental Improvement Plans (EIPs). EIPs represent Alcoa’s public commitment to continuously improve environmental performance, reduce environmental impacts and develop more sustainable operating practices. We are proud that some of the targets outlined in many of our EIPs go beyond our formal licence conditions.
We work closely with the Community Consultation Networks in which we operate, to establish targets for environmental improvement and subsequently devise actions to achieve those targets. Local and State Government representatives and environmental regulators also have significant input into our EIPs.
The EIPs deliver improved transparency and accountability and cover areas such as:
• Air quality, including greenhouse gas and energy efficiency
• Waste management
• Water conservation
• Groundwater management
• Land management, including visual amenity, rehabilitation, and fauna/flora management
• Community involvement
• Environmental regulation.
Across Australia, EIPs are an important part of Alcoa’s business plans for each of our operational sites.
