American aluminium firm Kaiser Aluminum released its 2021 Sustainability Report this week in which it described its environmental, social, and governance programming and development.
The report elaborates upon Kaiser Aluminum’s long-term efforts to continue to grow in a responsible manner. Keith A. Harvey, President and Chief Executive Officer, noted in a press release that the firm’s plans revolve around increasingly important sustainability considerations.
“We continued to build on the core elements of our sustainability initiatives in 2021 to ensure we are well-positioned for future growth in the rising circular economy. Our accomplishments are a result of our continuing commitment to identify, enhance and implement policies, disclosures and programs to create a more sustainable future and long-term value for our stakeholders. We believe Kaiser represents a part of the carbon solution with products that are inherently sustainable and infinitely recyclable, which continues to further support the strategic positioning of our company as a responsible and resilient organization for long-term growth and profitability.”
Among the year’s highlights were expanding environmental disclosures at its Warrick and Trentwood mills, expansion of the scope of duties of its ESG Committee, greater social disclosures, and a strong safety performance during the year.
“Looking ahead, we will remain focused on continuing to nurture our corporate culture of safety, diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging, as well as maintaining our strong corporate governance practices and implementing our strategies and investment decisions in-line with our corporate values and sustainability initiatives for the benefit of all stakeholders,” Harvey concluded.
