Alcoa was presented with the Industry Leadership Award for Aluminum at the inaugural Platts Global Metals Awards, sponsored by Platts, a leading global provider of energy, petrochemical and metals information.
Alcoa was recognized for taking decisive action resulting in a substantial transformation or change of direction in the aluminum industry.
"It is extremely gratifying to be recognized for our leadership in the aluminum industry as we mark our 125th anniversary since our incorporation," said Alcoa Chairman and CEO Klaus Kleinfeld. "This award is a tribute to our dedicated employees who have made Alcoa an industry leader."
Executives and companies from 11 countries were selected as finalists for the awards, which recognize exemplary performance in nearly a dozen categories. Judging criteria for the industry leadership category included financial results, innovation, product quality, safety and strategic vision.
Winners were announced during a black-tie dinner held in London this week.
