A Planet to Love

A better tomorrow for us and our planet is everyone’s concern. The “A Planet to Love” programme is an initiative by Aluminco to translate its commitment to the principle of Responsible Operations into action, focusing on four key modules. Among others, it includes education, eco-coloured actions and of course the company’s absolute commitment to environmentally friendly production and the development of aluminium systems for passive buildings.

Environment

Like every industry, aluminium producers are using a large amount of physical resources in the process of production, recognizing the negative effect on our ecology. Our goal is to minimize these negative effects by adapting the most recent technologies.

  • Electrical consumption and carbon dioxide emissions: Installation of a photovoltaic plant of 1,2 MWp, on existing premises with an annual energy production of 1.750.400 kWh and saving of over 1.925 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2 ) annually.
  • Environmentally friendly aluminium systems: Product declaration ( EPDs)
  • Effective liquid Waste disposal: Biological plant for handling waste disposal.
  • Enforcement of recycling: Solid chemical waste as well as office consumables are fully recycled.
  • Wise handling of transportation of goods and company vehicles
  • Optimal use of special equipment and dangerous substances: Minimal visional and acoustic disruption.
  • Participation in community action of planting trees, providing training to schools on aluminium and supporting the public sector and media on any environment protection actions.
