Aug. 20. 2021
Marubeni Corporation (hereinafter, “Marubeni”) hereby announces the commencement of sales of its carbon neutral aluminium ingot called, “Neutr-Al” in Japan from Aug. 20. 2021.
In recent years, the reduction of Green House Gas (hereinafter, “GHG”) emissions is an essential factor in doing business. The Japanese government has announced that Japan will reduce its GHG emissions to net zero by 2050 and as such, it is now increasingly necessary for businesses to reduce GHG emissions, and people across all industries are seeking effective methods of doing so.
“Neutr-Al” is an aluminium ingot which makes neutralizes its GHG emissions from bauxite mining, alumina production, aluminium smelting, and its transportation to Japan carbon by carbon credits, which are created by GHG reduction and/or absorption activities in Japan and abroad.
Utilizing Marubeni’s vast knowledge in aluminium and carbon credit, “Neutr-Al” will remove the barriers to GHG reduction by calculating GHG emissions, suggesting the most reasonable GHG reduction method, and retiring carbon credits all at once at Marubeni so as to contribute to the transition to carbon neutral society.
Alumina : Aluminium oxide produced from bauxite and raw materials of aluminium ingots.
