Further action to reduce emissions intensity will be needed to get on track with the Net Zero Scenario
The sector was directly responsible for 275 Mt of CO2 emissions in 2021 (a 2% increase on the previous year) and if indirect emissions from electricity consumption are included, that number jumps to around 1.1 Gt of CO2. The overall average direct CO2 intensity of aluminium has seen only a slight decline over the past few years. In contrast, the Net Zero Scenario sees emissions intensity decline by about 3.5% annually to 2030.
