Alumina Limited’s Board has ultimate responsibility over all sustainability matters at Alumina. In 2020 Alumina’s sustainability governance and strategy was strengthened by the formation of a Sustainability Committee of the Board. All members of the Board sit on this committee.
In regards to sustainability governance for AWAC, Alumina Limited’s principal interest is the integration of sound environmental, social and governance practices alongside sustainable financial performance.
This is achieved through:
- discussing AWAC’s long term strategies and objectives with managing partner Alcoa
- supporting the policies and practices that are implemented in AWAC companies to ensure sustainable operations
- reviewing reports of non-compliances including for environmental and labour matters.
The Sustainability Committee Charter sets out the roles and responsibilities of the committee. It meets at least quarterly to assist and provide recommendations to the Board in relation to ESG matters including setting and reviewing relevant strategies, policies and position statements.
The committee also monitors performance, including reviewing reports of noncompliance on human rights, environmental, labour or anti-corruption grounds.
