For more than six decades,we have produced aluminum with a commitment to building a better world.
Our operations, in seven Brazilian states, support 5,549 direct jobs. We produce low-carbon aluminum that is used in a diverse range of industries.
Our operations span the entire aluminum value chain: from the mines where bauxite is extracted, through the refineries where bauxite is processed into aluminum oxide and smelters where molten aluminum is produced, to facilities where the aluminum is made into a range of primary products (ingots, slabs, billets and rod) and semi-fabricated products (caster rolls, sheet, foil, extruded profiles, and parts and components). In a model based on ethics and respect for the environment, we also work with strategic customers to co-develop customized and increasingly sustainable solutions.
Inspired by our purpose to deliver aluminum solutions that transform people’s lives, we have placed sustainability and innovation at the core of our business strategy.
We are guided by a strong digital culture to drive competitive advantage in everything we do. Our CBA 4.0 journey to optimize processes and operations, and develop new mindsets, is underpinned by four pillars:
Instilling new behaviors as part of a more agile mindset, fostering a digital culture and encouraging employees to think, act and do things differently.
Driving changes and redefining what we offer, how we offer it and how we operate to achieve competitive advantage, and maximizing results by simplifying, eliminating and reinventing existing processes.
Implementing enabling technologies, such as mobility, cognition and the Internet of Things, to drive business growth.
Minimizing corporate risks stemming from new technologies, and protecting data, information and people.
