An investigation of the risks related to aluminium procurement and the available risk mitigation strategies

Abstract : The accentuation of global sourcing put the procurement department even more in a position of risk manager, impacting directly the company financial results. This risk management role is particularly present for the raw materials sourcing, because of the increasing tensions around non-renewable materials. In this research, the aluminium procurement risks will be emphasised, along side with other raw materials when appropriate, in order to highlight relevant risks mitigation strategies. The research begins with a literature review of already published data on the subject, as well as the functioning of the aluminium procurement market. Then, the field results part will present the results of the interviews conducted, defining the mentioned risks related with the aluminium procurement and the strategies deployed. Finally, the proposed recommendations to WestRock will be explained in the last sub-section.
