Dedication to Sustainability & Community Service
At Novelis, sustainability is core to our business operations and extends to how we partner with stakeholders across the aluminum value chain. We see tremendous opportunities in continuing to expand the use of lightweight, infinitely recyclable aluminum to help our customers achieve their sustainability goals.
Novelis Neighbor is our global program for sponsoring and coordinating our community engagement and charitable investment efforts. As part of our worldwide corporate social responsibility campaign, Novelis employees supported 350 community projects at 32 sites in 11 countries in FY17. These projects focus on three pillars: making communities safer; supporting Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education; and, increasing recycling by consumers.
Our employees are generous with their time and talents, donating thousands of hours annually to various programs that benefit the communities in which we live and work resulting in more than $5.5 million in community investments. Much of that work is done through our long-term partnerships with Habitat for Humanity, FIRST Robotics and Discovery Education. Also part of the program is our annual Novelis Volunteer Month, which funds and executes large-scale employee volunteer projects each October across all of our operations and facilities worldwide.
