Constellium GHG Emissions Rose in 2022
Constellium, a French aluminum company, announced that in 2022 its GHG emissions intensity increased despite observed improvement in energy efficiency at most of the company’s sites.
This increase is mostly due to changes in electricity grid mixes (Scope 1 and 2) and increase of primary metal footprint purchased by its European operations (Scope 3), as a consequence of the metal and energy crises.
Constellium is confident it can reach its 30% reduction targets in 2030.
“I am proud of the ownership and initiative our employees have taken in working to deliver on our sustainability commitments, especially in this challenging environment,” said Jean-Marc Germain, CEO of Constellium in a statement. “Unfortunately, our greenhouse gas emissions increased as a result of the current geopolitical situation and the related energy and metal crises. Our teams are working hard to get us back on track and I am confident we will reach our 2030 targets.”
In 2022, 41% of the company’s aluminum input came from recycled sources. The company continues to increase its recycling capacity, including a new recycling center in our facility in Neuf-Brisach, France, putting it on track to achieve a target of 50% recycled input by 2030.
