Aurubis Strategy

We have a clear objective: We want to become the most efficient and ­sustainable smelter ­network worldwide

Building on our strategy, the three pillars of growth, efficiency, and responsibility, we want to continue developing Aurubis from a copper producer to a mulitmetal group until 2025, and become the most efficient and sustainable smelter network in the world. Copper, our main carrier metal, will continue to play a key role in the future because no other metal is accompanied by such valuable additional elements.

We will process a higher quantity of complex copper concentrates while continuing to expand the proportion of recycling materials we use as input. Through internal growth and sensible acquisitions, we will further strengthen our smelter network and therefore our position. We will keep optimizing structures and processes to ensure Aurubis’ cost efficiency and investment strength in the long term. And in all of our activities, our conduct is based on a sustainable economic approach in accordance with our mission of responsibly transforming raw materials into value – to provide metals for an innovative world.
