Alcoa Recognized for ESG Leadership by the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices
PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 16, 2021--
Alcoa Corporation (NYSE: AA) has once again been recognized for environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance based on criteria in the annual Dow Jones Sustainability Indices.
The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) are the longest-running benchmarks to assess the sustainability performance of the world’s largest companies. Alcoa’s name has been included in the DJSI every year since the inception of the annual listings in 1999.
“Sustainability is embedded in Alcoa’s strategic priorities, and our consistent listing in the DJSI underscores this steadfast commitment,” said Sonya Elam Harden, Alcoa’s Executive Vice President and Chief External Affairs Officer. “Looking ahead, we’re continuing to advance our efforts in alignment with our vision to reinvent the aluminum industry for a sustainable future.”
This year, Alcoa is included in the materials category of the North American Index and was recognized as the Social Dimension leader in the aluminum industry, reflecting the company’s efforts to deliver positive social impact in communities where it operates, provide transparent and comprehensive social reporting, and prioritize employee health and safety. Alcoa’s Environmental Dimension score was also in the industry’s 90 th percentile.
Alcoa has recently made several strategic announcements that reinforce the company’s sustainability leadership, including its ambition to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across all global operations by 2050 and a new technology roadmap aimed at decarbonizing the aluminum value chain and provide a competitive advantage in a carbon-constrained world.
