We’re securing and strengthening our core business, improving it even more. Producing metals from concentrates and recycling materials remains a strong foundation for us. In the future, we want to use synergies in the Group by connecting our sites in a targeted way and optimizing material flows. This will allow us to create the conditions for further growth.

Recycling is a driver of growth for us. Our copper cathodes already contain about 45 % recycling material. We want to achieve a recycling rate of 50 % by 2030. North America and Europe in particular provide us with significant growth opportunities that we will leverage with our scalable Aurubis Modular Recycling System. This will kick off with our new recycling plant in Augusta, located in the US state of Georgia. Another high-priority growth area for us is battery recycling.

Sustainable conduct and business activity are integral components of our strategy. We want our production to be carbon-neutral well before 2050 – with measurable targets and concrete measures to reduce emissions. Through our responsible approach to resources, we’re already making a notable contribution to the energy transition with our production techniques – just as we do with our products.
