Third Quarter 2014 Business Update
Aluminium has always offered unique advantages for designing the shape, appearance and finish of modern buildings. And, it offers an even more important advantage for today: sustainability. With the demand for green building solutions increasing in all corners of the world, Alcoa has developed new aluminium components and designs that enhance energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions and help achieve green building standards.

Alcoa aluminium helps drive innovation of high performance, ultra thermal cladding solutions by preserving the advantages of high-performance glass. We offer highly reflective surface finishes that allow for efficient light management and lower energy consumption – keeping buildings cool in hot climates. Our advanced facade solutions help reduce CO2 emissions from buildings and reduce energy consumption. The alloys we use are weather-proof, corrosion-resistant and immune to harmful effects of UV rays, ensuring optimal performance over a very long time. All in all, good building designs – using aluminium - offer enhanced productivity and comfort by delivering natural ventilation, and direct access to daylight and outdoor views for building occupants.

95% of aluminium in buildings is recycled today, and aluminium building products can be repeatedly recycled into similar products with no loss of quality. Alcoa aluminium's unmatched recyclability gives architects the ability to design with cradle-to-cradle lifecycles in mind, to help achieve green building standards.
