SUSTAINABILITY

Within our own business and in the metals industries more widely, we are committed to both driving and lending support to sustainability initiatives.

Our Responsible Sourcing requirements represent the first step in our efforts to support and help steer our industry’s collective drive towards a more sustainable future. Underpinned by the OECD Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, our rules ensure that industry participants will be able to take delivery of metal from any one of our listed warehouses and be assured that it was responsibly sourced. Visit our Responsible Sourcing page for more information.

In addition to our focus on ethical sourcing practices, we are engaging actively with our stakeholders on broader sustainability issues – especially in the aluminium sector – and are committed to supporting initiatives that facilitate the global transition to a low-carbon economy.

LME-ASI memorandum of understanding

The London Metal Exchange (LME) and the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) have developed a Memorandum of Understanding to underpin collaboration on responsible aluminium value chains.

Key areas of focus include:

  • Use of ASI Certification to evidence aluminium brands’ compliance with LME responsible sourcing requirements which are centred on the OECD Due Diligence Guidance
  • The potential use of ASI Certification, metrics and audits to support LME initiatives to bring together buyers and sellers interested in aluminium with sustainability assurance
  • LME input into ASI monitoring and evaluation projects
  • Other relationship-strengthening activities that can promote the shared values of both organisations.

Mining Journal Stakeholder Engagement Programme

We are pleased to be a part of Mining Journal's Stakeholder Engagement Programme. The initiative aims to create a forum where resources companies can engage with investors, employees, governments, end users and civil society groups; and where stakeholders can engage with and better understand the mining industry.

Visit Mining Journal's website to access a comprehensive information hub featuring blog posts, podcasts, videos, interviews and more addressing some of the wide-ranging topics of discussion surrounding the mining industry today, and be part of the conversation.
