Our Sustainability Council was formed in 2012, to provide a formal body to develop and implement our Company’s sustainability goals and practices. It has representatives from every facet of our business, because sustainability is a collective agenda and it’s important that each department has a voice and can share their perspective.
The council defines and updates our sustainability policy and links it with the overall Constellium corporate strategy. As part of this, they discuss feedback and any sustainability projects proposed by key stakeholders, including customers, suppliers and NGOs.
The team is responsible for agreeing on key environmental and social objectives, targets and indicators, and tracking our performance against them. In addition, the team ensures accurate disclosure of sustainability data, together with alignment to Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) and United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) amongst others. The Sustainability Council meets on a regular basis four times a year. One of these events is a special meeting with the Executive Committee of Constellium where they recap actions and decide key priorities for the years ahead.
