Alcoa Recognized As Aluminum Industry Sustainability Leader; Named To Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes For Twelfth Consecutive Year

For the twelfth year in a row, Alcoa (NYSE: AA) has been named to one of the most highly recognized and longest-standing global sustainability indexes, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI). Alcoa was again recognized as the global aluminum industry sustainability leader and the North American leader in the aluminum sector.

“At Alcoa, sustainability is an integral part of how we do business,” said Kevin McKnight, Alcoa Environment, Health and Safety Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer. “Whether it’s improving the energy efficiency of our primary aluminum business, making cars and airplanes more fuel efficient, or continuing to innovate aluminum food and beverage packaging, sustainability guides everything we do. Alcoa is honored to be named to these highly esteemed sustainability indexes for the past 12 years.”

Highlights of Alcoa’s industry-leading sustainability performance include:

  • Economic: Continued to integrate sustainability metrics into our supplier assessment process to drive a more sustainable supply chain.
  • Environmental: Achieved a 23.2% reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) intensity between 2005 and 2012, making significant progress toward achieving Alcoa’s 2020 goal of a 30% reduction.
  • Social: Alcoa Foundation contributed US$21.5 million to environmental, educational and community programs in 2012, and a record 60% of Alcoa employees volunteered in their communities during Alcoa’s 2012 Worldwide Month of Service.

To learn more about the company’s approach to sustainability, read Alcoa's 2012 Corporate Sustainability Report and reports from Alcoa regions worldwide.
