Industry Priorities

The Aluminum Association advocates for common sense policies in the areas of Climate, Infrastructure, Recycling, Trade and Workforce. In total, U.S. aluminum supports hundreds of thousands of U.S. jobs and tens of billions in economic impact. The industry also helps drive a more sustainable future — with more fuel-efficient vehicles, green buildings and infinitely recyclable packaging. Working with policymakers, we can ensure that the U.S. aluminum industry remains a cornerstone of American manufacturing for decades to come. 



Lightweight, durable and infinitely recyclable, aluminum is a big part of the solution to global energy and climate challenges. The U.S. industry is continuously innovating to reduce energy use and carbon impact.



Durable, corrosion resistant and sustainable, aluminum is a material tailor-made for 21st century infrastructure projects. And building America means building with aluminum. 



Recycling is essential to the modern aluminum business. And making recycled aluminum is nearly 95% less energy intensive than making new aluminum. 



The U.S. aluminum industry is part of a highly competitive global commodity marketplace. To compete on a fair and level playing field, the industry relies on a rules-based trading system and robust trade enforcement. 



U.S. aluminum works diligently to recruit and retain the diverse workforce of tomorrow—trained in both traditional and advanced manufacturing skills. The association also leads several programs to support worker health and safety.

With strong demand, ongoing capital investment and job growth, now is the time for policymakers to act to support the U.S. aluminum industry in an increasingly competitive global marketplace.
