Aluminium Forward 2030

ALUMINIUM FORWARD 2030 is a new industry initiative by the International Aluminium Institute (IAI).

This initiative gathers industry leaders, producers, and transformers from all aluminium-consuming market segments to work together and implement a 2030 roadmap of projects to ensure that the consumption and production of aluminium meet the growing needs of society while driving towards net zero carbon and meeting broader sustainability challenges highlighted in the UN Sustainable Development Goals, such as social inequality, biodiversity loss, access to fresh water, and circularity.

It builds on IAI’s 50 years of progressing sustainable production and use of aluminium through collaborative projects on the management of wastes, reduction of pollution, and improving health outcomes for workers, communities and consumers; and credible, transparent data, and comprehensive analysis.

Aluminium Forward 2030 will initiate projects that improve performance relevant to other initiatives such as the First Movers Coalition, Mission Possible Platform and the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative.

Let’s build a future of aluminium together

Proposed Agenda for 2023

2023 starts with an exchange and consultation about the most relevant categories of sustainability issues facing the aluminium industry. These discussions aim to identify the sustainability challenges and where the industry stands on them, perspectives on progress and best practices, the action that needs to happen now and to explore projects that address these issues.

A series of online workshops will happen throughout the year with the objective of:

  • Developing a roadmap of impact opportunities and actions.
  • Engaging with coalition members through webinars and online platforms such as social media.

Face-to-face events will take place later in the year to share insights on the sectoral net zero carbon roadmap inclusive of all the UN Sustainable Development Goals and to explore opportunities for future projects by the Aluminium Forward 2030 coalition.
