Strengthening Europe’s strategic autonomy in aluminium

Aluminium is the base metal for the green transition and plays a unique role in Europe’s transformation to a more sustainable, digital economy. Thanks to aluminium’s widespread use in clean technologies and essential applications, aluminium demand in Europe and globally will grow exponentially.

Increasing and preserving the capacity of Europe’s low-carbon primary aluminium production and world-class recycling sector is the only way Europe can meet the growing aluminium demand and achieve strategic autonomy. To do so, we require an ambitious and coherent industrial strategy to inspire business confidence, attract investments and remain competitive globally. As part of this strategy, we call on policy makers to better reflect aluminium’s strategic role in the twin transition by improving the classification of our metal in EU raw materials legislation.
