Local communities

We are committed to the development of the local communities in the surrounding areas of our three plants in the state of Pará in northern Brazil – the alumina refinery Alunorte, the primary aluminium plant Albras and the bauxite mine Paragominas.

In 2017, we revised our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy to expand and improve our contribution to sustainable development in the communities in which we operate, and particularly in Barcarena. Following the flooding of Barcarena and our Alunorte alumina refinery in February 2018, we have further expanded our support to local communities nearby the refinery.

Operational improvements to Alunorte

We aim to bring Alunorte up to a new environmental standard and are in the process of upgrading the plant.
