We think in life cycles

Integrated Sustainability – that’s our strategy

To protect our planet as best we can, we are pursuing an ambitious sustainability strategy with a strong focus on the CO₂ footprint and transparency of our products and operations.

This commitment is also highlighted by our membership in the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI), where aspects such as human rights, resource reduction and employee well-being are all aspects of our certification against ASI’s Performance & Chain of Custody Standards.

Speira has strong connections to the areas in which we work and live. We have worked hard over the years to promote our business operations and are proud of the relationships we have built with local organizations and community groups to further develop these areas.

SUSTAINABILITY

The full potential of aluminium

How we optimize production, processing, and recycling

0%

At Speira, we take sustainability very seriously. A prime example can be seen in our external metal sourcing, where we have reduced our CO₂ emissions footprint by 25% over the last five years by carefully selecting suppliers who provide us with aluminium featuring a low CO₂ footprint.

We work closely with our partners to analyze each stage of aluminium production to identify new possibilities, and to share the data together along with our expertise. In this way, we are continuously striving to produce our products efficiently and with the environment in mind along each step of the process.

We do all this with the aim of creating a circular society that not only benefits of our customers but to also ensures the necessary resources for future generations.

TRANSPARENT AMBITION

Analyzing, identifying, improving – with absolute precision

Our processes for resource-saving products

Aluminium is the perfect material for our ambitions! For example, it provides safe, lightweight components for the automotive industry, which helps to reduce overall emissions. However, the way aluminium is produced and processed is also a crucial success factor.

RESPONSIBLE USE OF RESOURCES

Taking aluminium to the next level

Using data analysis and monitoring to achieve ambitious climate goals

It is our responsibility to use resources carefully and conscientiously. This philosophy shapes everything we do. As an aluminium company, we manufacture a wide range of products that vary in terms of production and energy requirements.

RECYCLING

Our material has no end

How we make aluminium re-usable, again and again

Responsibility for our products does not end at the manufacturing stage. We are actively committed to creating a closed-loop material flow. As such, we support several initiatives to ensure that more and more aluminium products are properly recycled at the end of their life. Currently, the average recycling rate for aluminium beverage cans in Europe is 76%. Together with our industry partners, we want to increase this figure and ensure by 2030 that all our aluminium products are fully recovered and recycled.

And that’s not all: by 2025, we aim to see the use of recycled metal in our production exceed 40%. Innovative sorting and recycling technologies as well as close collaboration with our direct customers in the food and beverage industry will help us on this journey.

EFFECTIVE PROCESSES

Our shared path to the future

Efficient production, powerful innovations, further development

At Speira, we are all about aluminium, the material of the future, and not just for our sake. Replacing other materials with aluminum can encourage greener mobility and more sustainable transport routes. A potential that we enthusiastically promote! For example, we have invested €130 million in a new production line at our headquarters in Grevenbroich, enabling us to increase our capacity for aluminium-based car bodies from 50,000 to 200,000 metric tons.

COOPERATION

Clear positioning

Sustainability goals defined in concrete terms

Focus on areas such as renewable energies, investments in energy efficiency.

Focus on areas such as the use of natural resources, increased recycling of metals, reduction of waste, sustainability reporting.

Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all

Over the years, Speira has invested in numerous projects to improve our energy efficiency, including the introduction of the EnEffCo energy management software system at our Grevenbroich manufacturing plant in NRW. This enables us to improve efficiency in real time, while having maximum transparency on energy usage across our production lines. Our teams of specialists at the manufacturing sites and in our R&D operations are continuously investigating new opportunities and technology to reduce our overall energy consumption.

Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

The benefits of aluminium recycling are well known - infinitely recyclable with no loss of quality, and only requiring 5% of the total energy consumption when compared to primary aluminium production. These characteristics fit perfectly to Speira’s commitment to sustainable operations, which is why we are significantly expanding our recycling capacity in the coming years. And we are looking forward to telling this story and many more via our future sustainability reporting efforts!
