Constellium announced the publication of their Sustainability Report, outlining the company’s 2022 results.
“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. We strive every day to keep our footprint as light as possible and to support the circular economy of tomorrow, while prioritizing our employees’ safety and well-being,” said Jean-Marc Germain, CEO of Constellium. “Our 2022 safety results remain among the best in any industry, and we are making good progress on our diversity and inclusion target to increase the representation of women in our company. 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.”
The report details Constellium’s sustainability performance in 2022, including:
- Safety: We delivered best-in-class safety performance again in 2022, with a recordable case rate of 1.85 per million hours worked vs. a target of 1.5 in 2025. Six of our sites reached milestones of more than 1 million hours worked without a recordable case.
- Gender diversity: In 2022, the percentage of women in our workforce increased from 13% to 14%, while the percentage of new female hires jumped from 24% to 31%. 22% of our professional and management roles were held by women, vs 21% in 2021, and we are on track to reach our target of 25% in 2025.
- Recycling: In 2022, 41% of our aluminium input came from recycled sources. As we continue to increase our recycling capacity, including a new recycling center in our facility in Neuf-Brisach, France, we are on track to achieve our target of 50% recycled input by 2030.
- Climate change: In 2022, our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity increased despite observed improvement in energy efficiency at most of our sites. This increase is mostly due to changes in electricity grid mixes (Scope 1 and 2) and increase of primary metal footprint purchased by our European operations (Scope 3), as a consequence of the metal and energy crises. Despite this challenging environment, our GHG emissions intensity remains among the best in the industry, and we are confident we can reach our 30% reduction targets in 2030.
