Taking action responsibly
We aim to be transparent in our work and progress with environmental management, quality and product safety, human rights, working conditions, and anti-corruption efforts.
Hydro is a Norwegian company with deep Scandinavian roots. We believe in achieving profitability in a way that is consistent with fundamental ethical values, showing respect for individuals, the environment and society.
Integrity and ethical behavior are everyone’s business at Hydro.
Ethical business is good business
The Code of Conduct builds on Hydro's values. As a global player in more than 40 countries, we believe there is no “one-size-fits-all” formula for responsible behavior, and Hydro’s Code of Conduct helps us deal with our specific challenges.
Hydro’s suppliers are important business partners and stakeholders. Our objective is to work only with suppliers who support our business principles and who continuously improve their standards towards our CSR principles. As a part of this, we require suppliers to sign our supplier declaration.
Reducing environmental impact
Our efforts to improve natural resource efficiency and minimize the environmental impact of our processes are also enhancing the attractiveness of aluminium. Environmental considerations are embedded in Hydro’s business planning and decision-making. We work to reduce our environmental impact by:
- Reducing energy consumption
- Reducing water input
- Reducing emissions to air (CO2)
- Improving waste recycling rate
