TOKYO, Dec. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- En+ Group, the world's leading producer of low carbon aluminium and largest private sector generator of hydropower, is pleased to announce that RUSAL, company of the Group's metal segment, has become a member of the JCLP, a powerful coalition of businesses seeking to advance the goals of decarbonisation and sustainable business.
RUSAL is proud to join the 163 companies of the JCLP, and contribute to its important work, which focuses on the communication of business trends, innovations and analysis for a low-carbon, and ultimately a carbon free, future.

The admission of En+ Group's company into the JCLP also represents an important step for low-carbon aluminium, as a material that is sustainably produced and which can power Japan's economy as it builds a sustainable economy which can deliver upon the Government's 2050 Net Zero emissions Target. RUSAL's membership of the JCLP can serve to highlight the crucial role played by sustainable producers of low-carbon aluminium, and raise awareness of the availability of this vital material so heavily relied upon in industries such as the automotive, construction and packaging.
Ayumi Murakami, Representative Director of the RUSAL's office in Tokyo, commented: "I am pleased that RUSAL has joined the JCLP. RUSAL supports the Partnership's important work and is delighted to be able to contribute to its efforts. We are pleased to see low-carbon aluminium recognized as an important facet of decarbonisation ambitions and hope that membership of the JCLP will further promote the use of aluminium produced in a sustainable way that minimizes emissions. RUSAL would like to thank the JCLP for its support, and looks forward to working as part of a business coalition for the achievement of a zero-emissions Japan."
