We integrate sustainable conduct and economic activities in the corporate culture
Sustainable conduct and economic activities are among the central components of Aurubis’ company strategy. This is why we treat the environment and limited natural resources with care. We exhibit responsibility towards our employees, suppliers, customers and neighbors. The same is true for the areas surrounding our plants and for the communities in which we do business.
Aurubis’ active prevention principle is a basic component of responsible business activities. We act conscientiously in our operating business and are growing to a sensible and healthy extent. Both of these factors form the basis of our sustainable economic success and secure Aurubis’ future.
We integrate sustainable conduct and economic activities into the corporate culture – at the individual sites and across business processes. We have initiated a variety of measures to minimize possible negative effects of our business activities on the environment, our employees and society as much as possible from the beginning.
Aurubis has released its fifth group-wide Sustainability Report, providing information about how we perceive our corporate responsibility. The report is oriented to the guidelines of the current version of the Global Reporting Initiative, GRI G4, as well as the principles of sustainability context, materiality, completeness and inclusion of stakeholders. It fulfills the GRI’s “Core” option. Furthermore, it takes the Mining & Metals Sector Disclosures into account.
If not otherwise stated, the report refers to the fiscal years 2013/14 and 2014/15 and to the entire Aurubis Group. In addition to relevant key figures, the report outlines successes, targets and challenges and presents the Aurubis Sustainability Strategy.
Our Sustainability Report 2015 simultaneously serves as the Communication on Progress for the UN Global Compact (UNGC).
