Reydarfjordur, Iceland 2010

For the seventh year in a row, Alcoa volunteers joined local 10th graders, members of the community, and representatives from the Reydarfjordur Forestry Association in June to plant 1,000 birch and mountain ash trees in an area located halfway between the small town of Reydarfjordur and the Alcoa Fjardaál smelter.

In 2003, then-Alcoa CEO Alain Belda promised area residents and the forestry association that his company would plant 2,007 seedlings in the area by the 2007 startup date of Alcoa Fjardaál. With that commitment fulfilled, the company has continued to donate and help plant 1,000 trees annually. Alcoa Fjardaál also makes an annual donation to a fund used to help the 10th graders visit Denmark to practice their Danish.
