“Rio Tinto Alcan is pleased to sponsor the European Aluminium Award 2010 and to salute all participants for their creative applications of aluminium.
Rio Tinto Alcan is recognized for its ability to continually adapt and enhance its competitiveness and this, thanks to our first-rate assets and resources, our leading smelting technology, our capacity for innovation and our commitment to sustainable development.
We constantly strive for the right balance between economic, social and environmental considerations, which drives us to research, innovate and offer solutions to our customers ranging from thinner foil for packaging to light-weighting and energy savings for transportation and construction. Via a leadership philosophy that’s focused on operational excellence, we engage with major industry players to develop and promote sustainable aluminium applications for growing markets.
We take this opportunity to thank all innovators — the designers, manufacturers, builders and constructors — that, through their vision, secure aluminium as a sustainable material for the future.
Rio Tinto Alcan is a global leader and long-term supplier of sustainable aluminium. We collaborate with innovators and partners across the value chain to sell more than aluminium … we sell sustainability for future generations.”
