Sustainable processes and recycling
As a socially responsible company, and with our customers’ environmental interests in mind, Constellium strives to integrate sustainability into our approach and practices.
We have long understood that cost efficiency is closely linked to environmental and social responsibility.
With our focus on customer satisfaction and operational excellence, Constellium partners with major industry players to develop and promote sustainable aluminium applications for growing markets, notably for automotive, packaging, building and renewable energy applications.
Specifically, we are helping our teams and customers realize the benefits of sustainability in a number of ways.
Striking the right balance
Our significant investments in research and development are evidence of our efforts to find the right balance between environmental, social and economic considerations.
Through our product stewardship program we analyze a product’s life cycle. This helps us identify key risks and opportunities for value creation, as well as determine the main environmental impacts, ensuring improvement efforts are focused on the most pressing needs.
Constellium is committed to finding compatibility between the company’s business activity and the preservation of biodiversity and ecosystems.
Recycling 1 kg of aluminium saves 4 kg of bauxite, 0.8 kg of chemicals and the equivalent of 34 Kwh of electricity. It also prevents the equivalent of 9 kg of CO2 greenhouse gas emissions.
