Aluminium Bahrain unveils comprehensive ESG roadmap to Net Zero

Aluminium Bahrain (Alba) has unveiled its environment, social and governance (ESG) roadmap, which align with Bahrain’s objective of ‘Net Zero Emissions by 2060’.

The roadmap was said to have been developed in collaboration with a well-known ESG consulting firm, and highlights six strategic priorities over the years: (1) Decarbonisation, (2) Green Energy & Aluminium, (3) Circular Economy & Secondary Aluminium, (4) Employee Welfare, (5) Collaboration & Partnership and (6) Transparency, Communications & Due Diligence.

According to a statement, Alba CEO Ali Al Baqali held a presentation on Alba’s ESG Roadmap in a hybrid format, which was attended by company’s executives, directors, and management team, as well as numerous employees and contractors’ workers. The ESG Roadmap will be further cascaded to all departments through a plant-wide campaign.

Commenting on the roadmap, Al Baqali noted, “As the world’s largest aluminium smelter ex-China, we have the responsibility to make the right choice today for a better tomorrow. Alba’s ESG Roadmap is an all-inclusive approach that embeds our ambitious targets to address the challenges that are and will affect us. The six priority areas outlined in the roadmap will accelerate our pace to further sustainable value for our people and society.”

Led by the CEO, a special ESG Taskforce Committee has also been created to evaluate the ESG-linked initiatives for each of the six priorities and monitor the company’s achievements, the statement concluded.
