With its most recent inclusion in the S&P Dow Jones Sustainability Indices, Alcoa has been recognized as a leader for environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance (DJSI).
Since the inception of the DJSI in 1999, Alcoa has been included in the annual indices, which are a globally recognized listing of companies with strong ESG performance.
Alcoa received an ESG score in the 96th percentile this year, placing it in the top quartile of all global companies within its industry peer group. Alcoa was also identified as the industry leader in governance and economic criteria, as well as in the environmental and social dimensions (biodiversity, environmental reporting, operational eco-efficiency, and water-related risks) (occupational health and safety and social reporting).
Alcoa's ESG ranking is the result of the S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment, a 2022 annual evaluation that included over 13,000 global companies.
“Alcoa’s continuous recognition via the DJSI indices affirms the important work we do to embed sustainability across our business and operations, beginning with responsible mining and active engagement with our communities,” said Sonya Elam Harden, Alcoa’s Executive Vice President and Chief External Affairs Officer. “At Alcoa, sustainability is one of our strategic priorities, and we have a vision to reinvent the aluminum industry.”
Alcoa's vision is supported by its technology road map, which includes breakthrough technologies with the potential to decarbonize the upstream aluminum supply chain, support the company's goal of achieving net zero emissions by 2050, and provide a future competitive advantage.
The company is a member of the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI), the most comprehensive third-party verification system for responsible production practices in the aluminum industry, and contributes to global sustainability initiatives through the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM.)
This year, Alcoa collaborated with the International Aluminium Institute (IAI) and Mission Possible Partnership (MPP) to develop a Sector Transition Strategy (STS) that outlines the potential for decarbonization in the aluminum sector in the context of a 1.5°C scenario.
Newsweek magazine recently recognized Alcoa as one of America's Most Responsible Companies in its annual ranking of approximately 2,000 publicly traded companies, which included surveys from 11,000 U.S. residents. Alcoa was featured as one of 500 companies in the materials and chemicals category.
