Sustainability

At UCIN Aluminium, sustainability is more than just a word

It is a commitment. A commitment that has led us to place the emissions of our production processes in figures well below the world average. With only 0.546 tonnes of CO2 per tonne of aluminium produced.

A figure that makes us, objectively speaking, the most sustainable manufacturer of aluminium products in the world.

Recycling Aluminium for a Better Future

Based on a circular business model, respect and care for the environment are part of UCIN’s DNA. Since its creation, environmental aspects and impacts have occupied a privileged position in the Group’s strategic, operational and support decisions.

At UCIN, we are committed to contributing to sustainable development by creating a high-value product from aluminium scrap, without endangering natural resources. Always in search of constant improvement, efficiency and effectiveness, through transparent management that contributes to the viability and profitability of today, and the sustainability of tomorrow.

Lowest Carbon Footprint
lowest in the sector

At UCIN we can say that the Carbon Footprint of our products is one of the lowest in the sector thanks to the 99.5% of scrap used as raw material in our lamination processes, thus integrating our business model into the Circular Economy.

Year after year, the Carbon Footprint is one of the main indicators on which we put our maximum effort and dedication, as our next target is to reduce it by 20% by the end of 2023.
