Presented by the EPA, in collaboration with the Association of Climate Change Officers (ACCO), the Centre for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) and The Climate Registry (TCR), the Third Annual Climate Leadership Awards were presented to only 15 companies.
Novelis was honoured in the Excellence in Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Management (Goal Achievement Award) category for publicly reporting and verifying corporate GHG inventories and achieving aggressive GHG emissions reduction goals. In addition, the company was recognised for demonstrating leadership in managing and reducing GHG emissions in internal operations and throughout the supply chain, as well as integrating climate resilience into its operating strategies. Since 2007, the company has reduced its overall GHG intensity by nearly 12% across its US locations, and globally, plans to cut its GHG contamination in half from 2007 to 2020.
“The EPA’s Climate Leadership Award is recognition that we are making real progress in our sustainability commitment, which we believe will be key to Novelis’ long-term competitiveness,” noted John Gardner, Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer, Novelis. “We are radically transforming our company to achieve our aggressive sustainability goals and are focused on the work that remains to reduce our carbon footprint, increase our recycled content and operate ethically and responsibly worldwide.”
