• Manicouagan-Uapishka World Biosphere Reserve

While none of our facilities are located within or in proximity to a protected area, the Baie-Comeau Smelter is situated near the Parc Boréal de Baie-Comeau and inside the Manicouagan-Uapishka World Biosphere Reserve (MUWBR), which was created in 2007. Alcoa sits on the MUWBR’s issue table and ensures, through financial and technical support, that the organization is able to fulfill its mission. The close and fruitful collaboration between the stewards of this reserve and our team in Baie-Comeau has become an example for other WBR managers around the world who share their lands with an industrial operation.
