Playing an active role in the World Climate Summit
During COP26, GFG Alliance was a key sponsor of the World Climate Summit – one of the most important official side events of COP26 and the leading forum for business, investors and technology providers to work together and develop real solutions to tackle climate change.
This November, we took the opportunity to reiterate our commitments to our climate goals at World Climate Summit. The next decade is crucial to act for our planet. Something has to change, and we all have a part to play. We need a plan for steel and aluminium to build a greener future, which is why it is vital that we take a lead and aim high with our mission to become carbon neutral by 2030 (CN30).
To encourage stakeholders from around the world to get behind our plans, we participated in panel discussions and events, and launched our campaign to promote the work we’re doing to decarbonise our businesses: To make change, we have to push.
Change is needed – but to make change we have to push with our workforce, stakeholders and partners all working together to deliver a sustainable reality for our businesses, through our GREENSTEEL and GREENALUMINIUM strategies.
Also in November, the company signed the GFG Alliance European Works Council Agreement (the first for GFG), which has been negotiated with employee representatives from across Europe and is a platform for constructive social dialogue across Europe. This is a very important Agreement, is a huge step forward in GFG Alliance’s Industrial Relations and will be a central pillar of its strategic commitment to embrace positive social dialogue on a European level.
