Environmental policy

The 21st century poses great challenges with regard to environmental protection, natural resources or impact on the climate. The challenges refer to all, however, the broadly understood business or production companies availing of the natural resources should first of all modify their impact, considering the influence on the environment in their decision-making processes.

Responding to the challenges, the Capital Group of Grupa Kęty S.A. implemented common standards and principles of conduct for all the Group companies as regards low emission, effective use of production resources and strive for climate neutrality in the perspective of 2050.

First of all, we strive to eliminate pollution through the proper organisation and selection of manufacturing techniques and methods.

The prepared Climate Policy
is an extension of the Environmental Policy binding for a number of years.

The company’s environmental interest is focused on responsible management of production processes, centred on ecological effectiveness and the application of environmentally-friendly technologies and practices. We aim at effective use of resources and reduction of pollution and waste. We focus primarily on the implementation of new technologies, reduced use of materials and energy, rational consumption of water and the elimination of waste and hazardous materials. We apply an approach based on the product life-cycle, reducing the impact of our products on the environment by way of an effective process of aluminium waste recovery from the market and its recycling in the remelting process.
Numerical data

Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI)

Grupa Kęty S.A. joined the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) in 2020. The global organisation deals with standards setting and certification for sustainable development, and associates the largest producers in the aluminium sector. The organisation concentrates on environmental issues within the whole cycle of aluminium manufacturing and using. Granting the membership required a detailed verification of our company.

The goal of Grupa Kęty S.A. is to obtain a certificate for the ‘ASI Performance Standard’. The standard defines 59 requirements within three sustainable development pillars – governance, environment and social issues. The standard imposes high requirements not only for production practices but also for the procurement of raw materials and product management. Owing to the fact that sustainable development is a key element of the strategy of Grupa Kęty S.A., the certification in accordance with the latest sector standards will be another stage for the objective achievement.
