Description
Alcoa is the world's leading producer of primary aluminum. Its markets include packaging, automotive, aerospace, construction, consumer goods, and commodity aluminum. In 2005 there were 129,000 Alcoans working at 428 locations in 43 countries to generate $26 billion in revenue. Alcoa is a charter member of the World Resources Institute's Green Power Market Development Group and has actively pursued developing LFG energy projects in the past. In 2000 Alcoa's energy division contracted to purchase all the electricity generated by an LFG energy project for two years. Alcoa's LMOP coordinator has published papers with WRI on LFG development and has given public presentations on LFG development and renewable energy certificates. Alcoa's GHG reduction efforts, and in particular its reduction of managed direct GHG emissions by 25% from 1990 levels since 2001, have been recognized internationally.
