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.
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:
