June 30, 2004

Alcoa recently announced that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has recognized the company for best practices to reduce energy consumption. The DOE has published a Corporate Energy Management Case Study highlighting Alcoa's achievements over the past five years, which include a reduction of 770 metric tons per year of nitrogen oxides, a reduction of 1600 metric tons per year of sulfur oxides and a reduction of 420,000 metric tons per year of carbon dioxide. The Alcoa Energy Efficiency Network, formed in early 2002, has helped the company achieve these results, which are part of Alcoa's global environmental goals laid out in its 2020 strategic plan.
