Hamburg, April 3, 2014 – Aurubis has released its latest Sustainability Report. The Report includes Aurubis’ overarching Sustainability Strategy developed in 2013, which is a part of the overall corporate strategy.
Copper is our metal. The Aurubis Group is the largest copper producer in Europe and the world leader in copper recycling. We produce some 1 million tonnes of copper cathodes each year and from them a variety of copper products.
Our core business is the production of marketable copper cathodes from copper concentrates, copper scrap and recycled raw materials. These are processed within the Group into continuous cast wire rod, shapes, rolled products like copper strips as well as special wire and profiles made of copper and copper alloys. Precious metals and a number of other products, such as sulphuric acid and iron silicate, round off our product portfolio.
Aurubis is a forerunner in the environmentally friendly processing of recycling materials. The multi-metal recycler uses complex materials with varying qualities and properties, e.g., electric and electronic scrap, as feed material. In addition, Aurubis is an attractive employer in the manufacture of non-ferrous metals.
Aurubis shares are part of the Prime Standard Segment of the Deutsche Börse and are listed in the MDAX, the European Stoxx 600 and the Global Challenges Index (GCX).
