Constellium SE has released its 2019 Business and Sustainability Report, which outlines the company’s progress against its sustainability goals.
Moreover, in its new Business and Sustainability Report, Constellium has set itself the goal of reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 25 % by 2025, compared with a 2015 baseline. “I am delighted by our significant progress. Achieving our Ecovadis Platinum ranking for corporate social responsibility practices and our ASI certifications are true testaments to our commitment to sustainability”, said Jean-Marc Germain, CEO of Constellium. “I am particularly proud of our achievements in improving our energy efficiency, which is at the heart of our efforts to limit our carbon footprint and reach our 2025 GHG target.”
Business and sustainability highlights
The report highlights milestones Constellium achieved in 2019, including:
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI). As an ASI founding member, Constellium has promoted the adoption of ASI Standards across the aluminium value chain, which require that the industry operates under a demanding set of governance, environmental and social criteria. The company received ASI Certifications for Singen’s casting and rolling operations in 2019. The Neuf-Brisach facility in France was certified against ASI’s Performance Standard under provisional Covid conditions in 2020.
Energy efficiency. Thanks to dedicated energy efficiency programmes at its plants, Constellium achieved a 2 % improvement in energy efficiency from 2018 to 2019, with a 6.4 % improvement against the 2015 benchmark – the equivalent of 100,000 tonnes of CO2
Reducing landfilled waste. The quantity of production waste sent to landfill decreased by 7 % as compared with 2018, preventing nearly 2,000 tonnes from ending up in landfill.
Safety. The recordable injuries rate decreased from 3.31 in 2016 to 2.40 in 2019. This was well below the target of 2.61 in 2019 and remains significantly lower than the industry average. However, Constellium experienced one fatality, which led to the implementation of a new EHS initiative, focused on behaviour.
Sustainable Purchasing. Constellium expects its suppliers to comply with all applicable laws and sustainability practices and conducts regular sustainability due diligence. As of 2019, nearly two third of our key suppliers have been assessed.
Constellium’s 2019 Business and Sustainability Report details the company’s initiatives and results and is organized and presented in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Standards. Most of the data in the report was verified by a third party auditor.
