Some of Century’s ESG performance highlights noted in the Sustainability Report include:

  • 100% of the power supplied to Nordural Grundartangi ehf., Century’s wholly-owned subsidiary, comes from hydroelectric and geothermal sources, while at Sebree and Hawesville, our power purchases have included an increasing amount of renewable energy for each of the past several years.
  • Technical redesign of our Vlissingen anode facility to optimize energy use and production capacity.
  • Continued development and innovation with “green aluminum” products to reduce both our and our customers’ carbon impact. An example of this is our Natur- Al™ product, launched in 2020.
  • Development of and implementation of new pot technology at Hawesville which we expect to deliver reduced power consumption and improved current efficiency.
  • Conducting a Safety and Health leadership engagement activity at Mt. Holly, Sebree, and Hawesville beginning in early 2021, aimed at providing leadership tools to help us accomplish Century’s safety vision.
