Alcoa has been named the most-admired metals company in the world in Fortune magazine’s annual ranking on corporate reputation. Alcoa shared the top ranking with ArcelorMittal, the European integrated steel and mining company.
Alcoa also received top ranking in sustainability and innovation, a testament to the company’s ongoing leadership in two areas that are key to the success of Alcoa’s business, customers and communities.
"It is extremely gratifying to see Alcoa's 61,000 employees receive this important recognition for their commitment to excellence and adherence to Alcoa’s values,” said Chairman and CEO Klaus Kleinfeld.
