Altus NZ Limited's objective is to minimise the environmental impact of our manufacturing and operational activities.

To meet this objective, we have put in place a number of programmes to deliver zero waste and zero incidents in the workplace.

One of these is Lean Manufacturing, which reduces waste and improves worker safety and operational performance. The principles of Lean Manufacturing, which form part of our overall industrial strategy, include:

Recycling of Aluminium

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.

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.
