Our aspiration

With its 2030 sustainability targets, Aurubis wants to expand its industry leadership in sustainability.

We follow the company’s mission of responsibly transforming raw materials into value – to provide metals for an innovative and sustainable world. Our sustainability understanding encompasses the focus areas of Economy, Environment, and People. Our 2030 sustainability targets establish the framework for our sustainability activities. The current Sustainability Strategy 2018–2023 is assimilated as a milestone into the Group strategy for 2030.

At Aurubis, sustainability means:
  • treating the environment and limited natural resources with care.
  • exhibiting responsibility towards our employees, suppliers, customers, and neighbors.
  • securing long-term company success with responsible business practices and stable growth.
Greetings from the board

We aspire to approach employees, suppliers, customers, and neighbors with a sense of responsibility, whether in direct business operations or in the areas surrounding our plants. The same applies to environmental issues, as we are aware of the limits of natural resources. We take on the challenges that come with this: sustainable conduct and business activity are integral components of the company strategy.

The company strategy Metals for Progress: Driving Sustainable Growth will more strongly integrate our sustainability aspirations in all areas and expand our industry leadership in sustainability. The 2030 Aurubis sustainability targets form the foundation for our responsible conduct. They relate to our nine sustainability action areas, for which new and ambitious targets were defined for 2030. For example, in the action area “Energy and climate,” our ambition is to be carbon-neutral well before 2050. In the action area “Recycling solutions,” we intend to offer the entire value chain solutions for the circular economy. Our roadmap is in place: we will continue solidifying our position as the most efficient and sustainable multimetal producer worldwide.

On our website, we provide an overview of the key action areas and targets. Detailed information is available in our sustainability reporting. We invite you to gain an impression of how we at Aurubis exercise our responsibility and how we integrate sustainability into our business processes and our daily work.
