  • Our role as responsible corporate citizens: Are we making a difference? What needs to be reformed?
  • Is the industry driving and educating the public about climate change and the need for recycling?
  • Is the average consumer aware of the environmental issues in the aluminium industry? Are they aware of the industry striving to reduce and eliminate its carbon footprint? Or is there a gap between industry and the public perception or public awareness? If yes how can we breach the gap?
  • The role of public communication and the importance to respond to public queries. Who's job is it?
  • What is the role of the Media? How transparent can we be as an industry with the public?
  • Will the average consumer contribute to a better environment by buying aluminium products? What do we need to do to contribute positively to the public?
  • When the public wakes up and demands answers, are we ready and proud to say we have achieved optimum environmental goals in face of what the world expects from us?
  • Are we doing enough in terms of cooperation and working for the common good or are we still working in silos?
