Novelis was named Metals Company of the Year at the Platts Global Metals Awards ceremony held in London earlier this month.
Novelis Present and CEO, Philip Martens, was also named CEO of the Year.
“It is a tremendous honor to be selected by Platts as both the Company of the Year and the CEO of the Year across the full breadth of the metals industry,” said Martens. “Being named Company of the Year is the result of the dedication and hard work of our 11,000 employees across the globe, and I want to express my heartfelt thanks to each of them.”
Novelis was selected among 17 finalists in the aluminium, copper, raw materials and mining, scrap and recycling and steel industries by an independent panel of judges. In 2011, Novelis set an objective to increase recycling content from 33% to 80% by 2020. To date the company has reached 43% recycled content and is well on their way to achieving their 2020 goal.
