This paper analyses historical and future global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for the global aluminium sector as well as the industry allowance under an International Energy Institute (IEA) Net Zero Emissions by 2050 (NZE) scenario.
The basis of this work is the environmental data collection (since 1980), the material flow model (since 2000) and transparent sectorial guidance on GHG calculations (2018 and 2021). In addition, the International Aluminium Institute (IAI) has been sharing benchmarking graphs of partial GHG emissions since 2008 and a complete dataset by 2022/2023 with member companies and is using the results to calculate an industry scenario.
This GHG focused work package by the IAI is aimed at guiding and informing the industry’s efforts to meet global climate targets.
