North America Supplier Sustainability


To Alcoa Suppliers,


Alcoa is recognized as one of the world’s most ethical and sustainable companies.  Part of our vision of being the best company -- in the eyes of our customers, shareholders, communities and people -- is our commitment to developing and continuously improving upon sustainable business practices.


Sustainability within our procurement function means selecting materials and services that consider the environmental, social, and economic impact in evaluating total cost. It is building relationships with suppliers who behave in a responsible and sustainable manner.


As a part of Alcoa’s continuing commitment to sustainable business practices, we expect our suppliers,  contractors and others with whom we conduct business to follow our Supplier Standards.  In the accompanying pages, we will share Alcoa’s approach to sustainability and our expectations of our suppliers.


As an important business partner, you play an integral role in helping us achieve our business conduct and sustainability goals. Your adherence to these standards is fundamental to our success.


Additional information regarding our Sustainability Program can be found in Alcoa's on-line Sustainability Report. If you have questions about Alcoa’s Supplier Standards, please contact us.
