Description:The Aluminium Association of Canada (AAC) and its member companies - Alcan Inc., Alcoa Ltd. and Aluminerie Alouette Inc. - signed a framework agreement with the Quebec government aiming to reduce, on a voluntary basis, greenhouse gas emissions from their Quebec-based facilities by approximately 200,000 tonnes by the end of 2007. This is the first agreement of its kind in both Quebec and Canada. The framework agreement on voluntary reductions of greenhouse gas emissions, signed with the Quebec Environment Department, provides that each company shall set emission reduction targets that will take into account the specificity of each.
