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 for families in need of a hand up, not a hand out.
One team went as far as to build an entire house from foundation to finish in just six days. Known as a “blitz build,” this home was the first of its kind in Atlanta and a construction feat that no other organization in the area has ever done before.
With annual builds in North America and Asia, and ongoing talks to use our aluminum in builds around the world, Novelis’ international partnership with Habitat for Humanity is growing, and with it, so is the safety and security of the families in our communities.
