Lubricants are uniquely positioned to assist organisations with achieving their sustainability goals. They help optimise use, prevent wear and early obsolescence—in doing so reducing emissions, replacements and the volume of mechanical parts entering landfills. An increase in efficiency also reduces the need for more energy.
However, the lubricants industry is changing rapidly, and sustainability requirements have exploded in recent times. There is a level of confusion around sustainability definitions, strategy and processes which poses challenges for our sector.
As an environmentally and socially responsible association, ALIA is fully supportive of local and global efforts to shape an energy future that meets the goals of United Nations’ climate initiatives. In a survey of our members, sustainability was recognised as one of the three key issues for their organisations. Therefore, we have firmly embedded sustainability as one of the top priorities within our organisation.
