DIGITAL ACTIVITY REPORT 2019 - 2020

Statement from our Director General

I look back on what we have achieved over the last year with great pride.  Alongside our members, we developed the Aluminium Agenda 2019-2020 for the new EU institutions, which outlines our industry’s carefully considered policy recommendations on trade, energy & climate, the circular economy and innovation. In an ever-changing world, the European aluminium sector needs to be even more agile while at the same time staying focussed on achieving a long-term vision. That’s why - with our I+ Manifesto - we have been calling on policy makers to deliver a strong and ambitious industrial strategy.

This call is supported by two reports that analyse and explain our potential and ambitions; the long-term "Vision 2050" and the mid-term " Recycling Strategy." While the former demonstrates our strategic role in helping achieve a carbon neutral economy, the latter substantiates the policy measures and technologies needed to match the growing demand for aluminium with an increased supply of recycled metal.

These are just a few highlights from a very busy year. To discover the latest achievements and current priorities of our association’s various divisions, committees and market groups (building, mobility, packaging), I invite you to explore our Digital Activity Report! 

A big thank you to our members, stakeholders, and of course, my team for their unfailing commitment and support throughout the year. Strong collaboration helps us achieve more together than we can ever do separately. That’s why I am certain that our industry has a bright future as one of the frontrunners driving Europe’s transition to a climate-neutral and circular economy.
