Environment

With its gradually eroded position as leading aluminium producer by China and the Middle East (first and third largest producers respectively) over the last 10 years, Canada now ranks fourth in the world but is still among the best in terms of environmental performance.

The Canadian industry has significantly improved its environmental performance over the last few decades, namely through the dedication of senior management, operational excellence, research and development, as well as through major, continuous investments to upgrade plants within a difficult economic climate. These factors also contributed to the Canadian aluminium industry’s world-class reputation.

Aluminium’s future potential is revealed through its daily usage, namely as a solution to the global issue of greenhouse gas reduction.
