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


Jürgen Schachler (Executive Board Chairman Aurubis AG) and
Dr. Stefan Boel (Executive Board Member Aurubis AG)

“It is important for us to conduct our business with responsibility – in the economic setting, when dealing with the environment and resources, and with respect to our employees. All of this makes us part of the social fabric. Our company has grown significantly over the past decade. We’ve expanded and have become bigger and more global – resulting in a continued increase in our sustainable business practices. We are happy to face this challenge, and a sustainable approach and practices are integral elements of our corporate strategy. At the same time, we are aware that the various aspects of sustainability can sometimes have a direct impact on our employees and their work, as they can on the relationship with our business partners, the environment and resources.

The foundation for our sustainable business, our targets and our activities is our Sustainability Strategy, which we developed in 2012 and 2013 and confirmed with a materiality analysis in 2015. The strategy focuses on the balance of “Economy – Environment – People” along the individual phases of the Aurubis value chain, “Raw materials – Processes – Products”. 

Our website provides an overview of the main areas of activity, measures and targets. You can find more detailed information in our current 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.”
