The International Aluminium Institute (IAI) recently commissioned Climate Risk Institute (CRI) and Risk Sciences International (RSI) to produce a series of informational tools evaluating and explaining the future effects of climate change on the aluminium sector’s sustainability. A principle focus of the project was to highlight one of the most consequential effects of climate change, specifically its impact on the health of the sector’s workers and their communities. Notably, the human health impacts of climate change will be most severe in many of the same regions where the aluminium industry is most active.
The adaptation measures covered in this report are aimed at both the private and public sectors to reduce impacts on workers, communities, and businesses.
Risk Sciences International was pleased to contribute to the conception of the project, lead the editorial effort of the project, and design all output materials.
