Alumina Limited

Economic contribution

Alumina Limited’s fundamental purpose is to generate long-term value for our approximate 59,000 shareholders through the 40 per cent ownership of the AWAC joint venture, which leads the global alumina and aluminium market

The sustainable economic performance of AWAC is vital to our future success and this is predicated on its ongoing ability to secure access to land, natural resources, employees, community support, financial capital and future market demand.

As the alumina/aluminium industry is central to many other industries such as aerospace, automotive and construction, it is susceptible to fluctuations in global markets (such as the recent economic downturn), leading to spikes and dips in demand.  The growing importance of aluminium to economic development combined with the need for lightweight, fuel efficient metals offers a long term future for AWAC.
