Aluminium is a cornerstone of the European Union’s green transition. Thanks to its versatile applications it is a key element of solar panels, wind turbines, batteries, heat pumps, hydrogen electrolysers and resource-efficient packaging. Aluminium also enables e-mobility and contributes to the construction of sustainable buildings. Projections indicate a potential 30% increase in aluminium demand by 2040, driven largely by the adoption of clean technologies.

As a strategic raw material, aluminium contributes significantly to the EU’s commitment to achieving climate neutrality by 2050. With this in mind, it is evident that a robust and competitive European aluminium industry is essential for delivering a green transition that is “made in Europe”. A thriving domestic aluminium sector not only ensures the reliability of the supply chain, but also fosters innovation, job creation and economic growth within the region. As we chart our course towards a sustainable future, we call on policymakers to set the foundation for a resilient, environmentally conscious and globally competitive European aluminium industry that aligns with the principles of the European Green Deal.
