Constellium releases 2021 Business and Sustainability Report


The company will present its 2030 sustainability roadmap on April 6, 2022 during Constellium’s Analyst Day.

PARIS, March 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Constellium SE (NYSE: CSTM) released today its 2021 Business and Sustainability Report, outlining the company’s progress on its sustainability goals as set in 2015.

“Despite a challenging environment, 2021 was a year of progress and improvement, thanks to the dedication and great execution by our teams. I am proud to report that we are on track with most of our sustainability targets,” said Jean-Marc Germain, CEO of Constellium. “Sustainability is both at the core of our strategy and a driver for our business, as we continue to meet our customers’ growing demand for light, sustainable and fully recyclable products. We are now focused on our ESG strategy and roadmap for 2030, with a new set of target initiatives, including improving our safety performance, reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, increasing recycling, and continuing to promote diversity and inclusion. We aim to fully play our part in the fight against climate change, and in enabling the circular economy of tomorrow.”

Constellium’s commitment to sustainability has been recognized by several independent organizations, with a Platinum rating from Ecovadis, an AA rating from MSCI, and an A rating from CDP 2021 Supplier Engagement Leaders for climate change. Constellium was also well ranked in various independent media surveys of sustainability and diversity.

The report highlights milestones Constellium achieved in 2021, including:

  • Safety: 2021 was the second consecutive year with a Recordable Case Rate(1) below 1.9, significantly lower than the industry average. 12 of our sites reached milestones of more than 1 million work hours without a recordable accident.
  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions: Despite the adverse impact from the Covid-19 crisis and the resulting supply chain disruptions, we managed to remain on track to meet our 2025 goal to cut GHG emissions intensity (scope 1 and 2) by 25% vs. 2015. Due to this challenging environment, we were not able to achieve our 2021 energy efficiency target, but we have put in place targeted actions to rapidly improve in a more stable operating environment.
  • Recycling: Recycled aluminium accounted for 41% of our metal input in 2021. We expect our recycled input to increase as we have announced a significant investment in a European recycling center with approximately 130,000 metric tons of capacity. In this effort, we also work in partnership with our customers and with trade associations, and are supporting an ambitious program to boost beverage can recycling in the U.S.
  • Reducing landfilled waste: We exceeded our 2021 target for landfilled production waste, with a 37% reduction vs. 2015 thanks to the successful implementation of recycling programs in all our sites.
  • Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI): Neuf-Brisach, Singen, Gottmadingen, and Dahenfeld are ASI certified, both for the Performance and the Chain of Custody Standards.
