1.5 Degree Aligned Emissions Pathways for the Aluminium Value Chain

Thursday 14th September 2023

Theatre :  Sustainability and Circular Economy 


Within a defined (and limited) sectoral carbon budget for the next 30 years, how does a global industry – responsible for 2% of anthropogenic emissions today and essential for the Green Transition – transform both itself and the systems into which its products are directed?

After decarbonisation of its already highly electrified production processes, circularity is the second largest opportunity for emissions reduction of the aluminium sector – how can such systemic change be realised by the decisions of individual actors in the value chain? What is the role of standards setting and certification schemes, such as ASI, and how do we ensure that the required shift in production and consumption, driven by climate imperatives is a Just Transition and does not come at the expense of other environmental or social outcomes or the loss of fragile communities and livelihoods?

In this Keynote, Chris Bayliss, Director of Standards with ASI, will explore these themes and the concrete steps that the multi-stakeholder Initiative is taking, along with its members, to drive positive, science-based and equitable change.
