Environment & Energy

Environmental protection, resource efficiency and climate protection have been components of Aurubis’ corporate culture for many years. They are among the key topics of the corporate strategy and are established in our corporate guidelines.

Our motto: copper is made by people for people.

We secure our leading position in environmental protection by learning and improving continuously. We assume responsibility for environmentally sound production across the Group, safeguarding our sites and creating a basis for sustainable growth processes.  

Strategy, Targets & Performance

At Aurubis, we strive to produce at a very high environmental standard across all production sites and business processes.

Recycling & Resource Efficiency

Aurubis already uses a large volume of recycling materials and has set the target of increasing the proportion of complex recycling materials further, by 20 %, from 2013 to 2018.

Technical Environmental Protection

Technical Environmental Protection is an important pillar of environmental protection at Aurubis. This also requires a willingness to implement innovative technologies.


Thanks to responsible and close cooperation with business partners and stakeholder groups, as well as participation in committees and associations, Aurubis contributes to the political process.

Energy & Climate Protection

The efficient use of energy is not only an ecological responsibility for Aurubis but an economic one as well.


The European REACH directive, which has been in effect since 2007, created a new framework for chemicals management.
