Every year, more than $70 million worth of aluminum ends up in Georgia landfills. And across the U.S., unrecycled aluminum accounts for more than $1.5 billion worth of waste, unnecessarily filling up landfills. As the global leader in aluminum rolled products and the world’s largest aluminum recycler, we understand the value of recycling. In fact, recycling is at the core of everything we do. In our plants around the world, we work to preserve the value of aluminum and maximize the environmental benefits of using our products. Because recycling aluminum requires 95 percent less energy, it produces 95 percent fewer […]
Novelis employees truly appreciate what it means to be a member of our communities and a good neighbor to those in need. Through Novelis’ charitable investment and volunteer program called Novelis Neighbor, employees volunteer their time, talents and treasures throughout the year, and especially during the month of October through our One Novelis Volunteer Month. With our One Novelis Volunteer Month having just ended I just want to say, thank you. Thank you to all the Novelis volunteers who helped impact more than 23,000 people globally.

We cannot solve the world’s challenges alone. We must find allies, people from different nations and cultures who are also determined to make tomorrow better than today. And then, together, we must start somewhere. Earlier this week, high school students from the United States and Brazil collaborated to teach elementary school students in Pindamonhangaba, Brazil about science, technology, mechanics, engineering, mathematics(STEM) and physics.
As the official provider of aluminum for FIRST™ Robotics Competition kits around the world, Novelis supports the young scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians that will one day help us solve some of the world’s greatest challenges.
At Novelis, we bring recycling, math and science education and safety to the world through the passion and volunteerism of our employees.

Novelis mirrored their donations with more than $3 million in corporate giving to support these actions. Novelis employees are out there making a difference every day, but here’s a glimpse into what we accomplished in just one month – our global One Novelis Volunteer Month. As you can see, at Novelis, we […]
The safety of those around us is always top of mind at Novelis, as thousands of members of our Novelis family work in recycling, casting and rolling plants around the world each day. We know that safety requires a solid framework, attention to detail and surrounding yourself with people you trust. That’s why nearly 300 Novelis employees in Atlanta, GA, USA and Seoul, South Korea decided to bring safety home this month for families in Asia all the way to North America. Working with their local chapters of Habitat for Humanity, the teams set out to build safe, sustainable housing […]
This week marks the kick-off of Novelis’ annual global volunteer month. In addition to volunteering their time and expertise in local communities year round, Novelis employees unite globally each October to drive impact locally in the core areas of recycling/sustainability, safety and math and science education. The Novelis Küsnacht office in Zurich was the first of 33 sites to kick off the month of service. Passionate about sustainability not only in their work but also their free time, Küsnacht employees decided to partner with the Gemeinde Küsnacht and Quadra Gmbh, a nonprofit organization committed to maintaining intact natural environments in […]
