ALUMEX reinforces its commitment to sustainability with the launch of the UBC Aluminum Collection Project


Reaffirming its commitment to sustainability by ensuring circularity in aluminum sourcing, Sri Lanka’s largest fully integrated aluminum manufacturer and member of the Hayleys Group, Alumex, recently launched a pilot project in the country to collect cans aluminum beverage containers (UBC) as part of its initiative to care for the environment.

The manufacturer installed large bins at key locations in densely populated neighborhoods and developed plans to roll out the project across the island. The initiative encourages the disposal of aluminum waste in an appropriate manner that protects and benefits the environment, thereby paving the way for cleaner bodies of water and land.

“Alumex relies on key values ​​that drive the organization, one of which is ‘citizenship’. In accordance with the Hayleys Lifecode, we not only strive to create a sustainable business that contributes to the national GDP, but also actively contribute to the betterment of our surroundings and environment.

“Circularity in raw material sourcing is something that industries around the world have started to address. With our expertise, we can reuse empty aluminum beverage cans in our manufacturing process while ensuring compliance with global alloy standards and providing a low-carbon product to the global market,” said Alumex Managing Director Pramuk Dediwela.

As the newest member of the Aluminum Stewardship Initiative’s production and processing division, Alumex is the first Sri Lankan manufacturer to commit to the standards and will work with members to foster production, sourcing and responsible management.

More recently, Alumex was recognized for its strong commitment to transparency and governance at the Asia Integrated Reporting Awards. The manufacturer was honored with Bronze in the Integrated Reporting (SME) category for concisely communicating its value creation to stakeholders.
