It’s Time to Drive Aluminium Beverage Cans Towards Full Circularity

The global use of aluminium beverage cans is set to increase to 630 billion units by 2030 (from 420 billion units in 2020). Recycling these 630 billion aluminium beverage cans globally would save 60 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per year. The International Aluminium Institute and Mission Possible Partnership stress the essential role of keeping aluminium within recycling loops to support the International Energy Agency’s Net Zero by 2050 goal.

As part of our planned global events, the Global Beverage Circularity Alliance will participate in New York Climate Week in September. The official event is due to take place at Suntory Global Spirits. This is a unique opportunity for you to learn, grow, collaborate and contribute to the global effort of achieving near 100% recycling of aluminium beverage cans by 2050.

The event will explore and establish viable pathways to this goal by bringing together industry leaders, policymakers, NGOs, and key stakeholders. Discussions will focus on addressing the challenges and opportunities in aluminium beverage can recycling, sharing success stories, and developing a collaborative action plan for global outreach.

This event is designed to foster dialogue, share best practices, and develop collaboration to enhance recycling rates for aluminium beverage cans. Your expertise and insights are invaluable in contributing to a 1.5 Degree Scenario for the Aluminium Sector.
