Hydro today announced two new low-carbon aluminium products, designed to help customers reach their sustainability goals and meet the demand from ever more climate-conscious consumers.

The new products will be independently certified by DNV GL.

The new products are:
• Hydro 4.0: hydropower-based aluminium with a maximum content of 4.0 kg CO2 per kg aluminium, and;
• Hydro 75R: aluminium with a guaranteed post-consumer recycled content of minimum 75 percent

“We are proud of our industry-leading climate strategy that has resulted in producing aluminium with the lowest energy consumption and the lowest emissions in the world, and our aim to become carbon-neutral from a life-cycle perspective by 2020. As every part of our aluminium production is managed in-house, we can now take the next step by launching certified sustainable aluminium products,” said Svein Richard Brandtzæg, Hydro’s CEO.
