To meet this objective, we have put in place a number of programmes that will deliver zero waste and zero incidents in the workplace.
Below are a number of these:
The Principle of lean manufacturing, which form part of our overall strategy are:
Aluminium can be recycled indefinitely as reprocessing does not damage its structure.
Aluminium is also the most cost-effective material to recycle. Reprocessing the scrap uses about 5% of the electricity needed to produce the original primary aluminium and its CO2 emissions footprint is significantly smaller. This makes aluminium a very successful and environmentally friendly recycled product.
By recycling your aluminium you will reduce your cost of waste to landfill and ensure that an important resource is not wasted.
Scrap aluminium from manufacturing, building demolition, and market collections achieves high sale values and is readily purchased, making aluminium one of the most successfully recycled products used in the construction industry.
Gate to Gate is an Altus initiative to reduce and manage the environmental impact of the aluminium throughout its journey from the NZAS gate to yours.
This includes Transportation, Manufacturing, Packaging, Fabrication and Recycling of any off cut metal.
We are working with our trusted partners to ensure the very best outcomes for Home Owners and for the for New Zealand environment.
With guidance from MBIE (Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment) Altus are working on reducing emissions from buildings during their construction and operation, while also preparing buildings to withstand changes in the climate.

In addition to our work with Gate to Gate, Lean Manufacturing and working with MBIE, Altus is a proud partner with Rio Tinto and the NZAS Aluminium Smelter in Bluff, New Zealand.
NZAS produces some of the world’s cleanest aluminium at approx. 2Mt CO2-e/t Al, compared to China which is predominately coal @ ~18t/CO2 per t/Al.
