Norsk Hydro: Den føderale domstolen løfter ett av to embargoer på Alunortes deponiområde DRS2

Del

Den føderale domstolen i Belém, Brasil, løftet i dag, 20. september, embargoen på det nye avfallsdeponiet for bauksittrester (DRS2) i den sivilrettslige prosessen. Embargoen på DRS2 fra den samme domstolen i straffesaken er fortsatt gjeldende, men det er forventet at avgjørelsen i den sivile saken vil gjøres gjeldende i straffesaken innen kort tid.

Alunorte vil fortsette å bruke det gamle avfallsdeponiet for bauksittrester (DRS1) til DRS2-embargoen i straffesaken er løftet.

Beslutningen om å løfte DRS2-embargoen i den sivilrettslige saken mot Alunorte kom etter at Alunorte og Ministério Público den 30. august innga en felles anmodning til den føderale domstolen om å løfte DRS2-embargoene.

- Dette er et viktig steg mot å gjenoppta installasjons- og igangsettingsaktivitetene ved det DRS2. Dette er et toppmoderne avfallssystem og er den eneste langsiktige og bærekraftige løsningen for Alunorte. Alunorte er fundamentet for aluminiumverdikjeden i delstaten Pará, og jeg setter stor pris på støtten vi har mottatt fra både ansatte og lokalsamfunnet, sier John Thuestad, konserndirektør for forretningsområdet Bauksitt & Alumina.

Den føderale domstolen løftet Alunortes produksjonsembargo den 20. mai 2019, slik at aluminaraffineriet kunne øke produksjonen fra 50 prosent opp mot normalt nivå. Alunorte oppfyller forpliktelsene som er avtalt i TAC (teknisk avtale) inngått i september 2018 mellom Ministério Público, delstatsmyndighetene i Pará, representert ved SEMAS, Alunorte og Hydro.

Interne og eksterne undersøkelser, herunder undersøkelser utført av myndighetene, har bekreftet at det ikke var overløp fra Alunortes deponi for bauksittrester eller skadelige utslipp som følge av regnfallet i februar 2018.

UPM Plywood is planning to scale down plywood production in Finland2.6.2020 11:00:00 CESTPress release

(UPM Plywood, Lahti, 02.06.2020 at 12:00) – UPM Plywood is planning to permanently close its Jyväskylä plywood mill, which is producing spruce and birch plywood. The company starts a consultation process concerning the entire personnel working at the mill. UPM Jyväskylä plywood mill employs 167 people. The Profitability of Jyväskylä plywood mill has been weak for a long time, even during periods of high-demand. Despite investments as well as savings and improvement activities, the profitability has not improved to a sustainable level. Competition in the birch plywood market is increasing constantly. New birch plywood capacity has been built especially in Russia, where the production cost level is significantly more competitive than in Finland. If realized, the planned actions would strengthen UPM Plywood’s overall competitiveness and performance in the long run. “In Finland, a full run of the capacity has not been feasible due to the terms in the woodworking industry. In addition, repe

Does ESG investing really have an influence on companies?2.6.2020 10:29:21 CESTPress release

Press Release - Boston, London, Nice, Paris, Singapore, Tokyo, June 2, 2020 Does ESG investing really have an influence on companies? Research questions integrated and score-based strategy on the risk of mixed message sent to companies What motivates equity ESG investment strategies is the ability to influence the behaviour of companies through the portfolio decisions that they lead to. To this end, it is often argued that an investor who is dissatisfied with a company's ESG behaviour, and who wishes to remedy the situation, needs to stay on as its shareholder and engage with it. Indeed it is believed that if the investor divests from the company, its influence over the company will cease. Moreover, the act of divesting is often presented as a passive approach that has no bearing on the company's management, a capitulation rather than a form of action. In a new publication entitled "ESG Engagement and Divestment: Mutually Exclusive or Mutually Reinforcing?" Scientific Beta argues that
