Advocacy and associations
Responsible corporate governance includes the appropriate representation of Aurubis’ political interests. We are in a continuous dialogue with policymakers at local, national, European, and international level.
We are politically neutral in the process and communicate with all parties that are part of the democratic system and that don’t hold discriminatory or bigoted views. We represent the company’s interests with the greatest level of transparency possible. Aurubis is listed in both the European Union's Transparency Register and the German Lobby Register, where it publishes data on expenditures and expenses. At the German level, Aurubis worked together with the German Chemical Industry Association (VCI) early on to introduce the lobby transparency register, which has been in effect since the beginning of 2022.
In addition to its independent lobbying, Aurubis is active in the key trade and professional associations of the metal, recycling, and chemical industries. Climate protection requires sustainably produced metals and a functioning circular economy. Industry is the key. What do we need to be successful in this regard? A suitable political framework. We advocate for this together with our associations.
