The World population has increased exponentially in the last 200 years. The United Nations expects world population by 2050 to be about 9 billion. The challenge of sustainability is to fulfill the basic necessities of everyone while at the same time the environment is capable of satisfying the needs of future generations. This challenge is shared by all nations, industries and communities. The products of human creation, including such industrial creations as aluminum, play a vital role in the success of this sustainability challenge.

The sustainable development of the aluminum industry.

The aluminum industry has to reduce to a minimum the negative environmental, social and economic effects while striving to maximize the positive effects throughout its life cycle.

This objective can be attained by the progressive improvement of the environment, occupational health, safety and an increase in its positive socioeconomic contribution. The Program for Sustainable Development “Aluminum for Future Generations” is supervised by the IAI, whose members are companies responsible for producing more than 70% of the world production of this alloy. This program consists of 13 objectives that cover all key phases of the aluminum life cycle, from pre-mining to post-consumption. The principles are the best practices in safety and occupational and environmental health and health management systems, the rehabilitation of mines and water, and energy efficiency, including the reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases and the recycling of aluminum.
