Greek industrial conglomerate Mytilineos Holdings S.A. joined the International Aluminium Institute (IAI) last week.
Mytilineos joined the global aluminium trade group, which has over half a century of data and analysis on production, consumption, energy use, and the environmental impact of aluminium.
The firm has been active in several industrial areas since its founding in 1990. Mytilineos has targeted reducing its own CO2 emissions by at least 30 percent by the end of the decade and to zero by mid-century.
Dimitrios Stefanidis, General Manager of Mytilineos’ Metallurgy Business Unit, said in a press release that membership in the IAI will enhance its focus on sustainability.
“With more than half a century of operations, we are proud to join the only body representing the global primary aluminium industry. Our Metallurgy Business Unit employs directly nearly 1.200 people and has a consolidated turnover of app. €700 m. which represents 14.8% of the Company’s total turnover (Q3 2022). MYTILINEOS has a €600 million investment injection, one of the largest private investments in the country. We will use the investment for the sustainable development of our plants.”
“We are delighted to welcome MYTILINEOS as an IAI member,” said IAI Secretary General Miles Prosser.
“MYTILINEOS focus on the wellbeing of its people, respect for the environment and responsible production of bauxite, alumina and aluminium aligns with IAI’s values and goals for a safe, fair and sustainable global aluminium industry, and so we are delighted to welcome them into our membership. Mytilineos’ membership strengthens the global voice of the IAI and that of a sustainable aluminium industry.”
