2030 ESG Strategy

CBA has decided that doing its part in building a better future is not enough. The Company aspires to lead and point the way to inspire its employees, partners, customers and suppliers. CBA’s goal for 2030 is to provide an offering of low-carbon aluminium products and sustainable solutions to the world’s problems, while developing the regions where it operates and positively influencing the end-to-end aluminium value chain.

Evolution of materiality assessment

CBA also revisited its materiality assessment in 2020 to identify the topics that are most material to the Company. The 11 topics were categorized into the three ESG pillars, in alignment with the Company’s sustainability strategy. Innovation and Technology, as an exception, has been classified as a cross-cutting topic spanning all three pillars.
