What We're Doing

Alcoa has taken a voluntary global leadership position on addressing climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
 
In 2003, we achieved our target of reducing global direct greenhouse gas emissions by 25% from a base year of 1990.  Since 2003, we have further reduced global direct greenhouse gas emissions to 40% below 1990 levels.
 
In Australia, Alcoa is addressing greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency, productivity improvements and technological innovation.  

Alcoa’s operations are among the most greenhouse and energy efficient in the world. Alumina produced by Alcoa in Australian uses just over half the energy and produces less than half the greenhouse emissions compared with most alumina produced in China.
 
Alcoa is helping lead the global aluminium industry’s efforts in its long-term goal of making aluminium climate neutral.
