Aurubis assumes responsibility for its business activities. Our Sustainability Strategy focuses on the balance of “Economy – Environment – People”.

Greetings from the board

“We aspire to conduct our business with responsibility – in the economic setting, when dealing with the environment and resources, and with respect to our employees. Aurubis has become more international and has grown significantly over the past decade. We take on the challenge associated with this – a sustainable approach and sustainable practices are integral elements of our corporate strategy. At the same time, we are aware that the various aspects of sustainability have a direct impact on our employees and their work, as well as on the relationship with our business partners, the environment, and resources.
The foundation for our responsible approach is the Aurubis Sustainability Strategy. The strategy focuses on the pillars 'Economy – Environment – People.' We set medium-term goals on a five-year basis. Consequently, we passed the new Sustainability Strategy in 2018. It is in effect until 2023 and guides our path to a successful future that aligns with the Aurubis mission ‘Responsibly transforming raw materials into value to provide metals for an innovative world.’

Our website provides an overview of the main areas of activity, measures, and targets. You can find more detailed information in our Sustainability Report. We invite you to see for yourself how we at Aurubis perceive our responsibility and how we integrate sustainability in our business processes and daily work.”
