          Pechiney Included in FTSE4GOOD Sustainable Development Index

Paris, October 2, 2003. Pechiney today announced that it has entered the
FTSE4GOOD Europe and Global indices.

Pechiney is one of the four latest French "recruits" to the FTSE4GOOD
sustainable development index, out of a total of 25 indexed French companies.
Its inclusion was announced in line with the six-monthly update of the list of
companies that meet the various inclusion criteria.

The criteria are centered on three main principles: working towards
environmental sustainability; developing positive relations with stakeholders;
upholding and supporting human rights.

Pechiney's inclusion in the series reflects the commitment of the company and
its people to an ambitious sustainable development process. Above all, it
encourages us to make all our environmental, health and safety actions part of a
sustainable improvement momentum.

Pechiney is involved in several initiatives and programs that promote
sustainable development, including:

     -    The Global Compact, a platform created by the UN for businesses and
          organizations that undertake to comply with nine universal principles
          for human rights, work standards and the environment;

     -    the Global Aluminium Sustainable Development initiative launched in
          2002 under the supervision of the International Aluminium Institute;

     -    the Partnership for Climate Action, created in 2001 by the
          non-governmental organization Environmental Defense;

     -    and AERES, the French association of businesses for reducing the
          greenhouse effect, which was created in 2002.

Specialized in sustainable development, the FTSE4GOOD series was created in July
2001 by the FTSE group, a worldwide market index provider. The series is
comprised of four indices: FTSE4GOOD Global, FTSE4GOOD Europe, FTSE4GOOD UK and
FTSE4GOOD US. To date, a total of 264 businesses make up FTSE4GOOD Europe and
631 form the FTSE4GOOD Global index.

Pechiney is an international group listed on the Paris and New York stock
exchanges. Its three core businesses are primary aluminum, aluminium conversion
and packaging. Pechiney achieved sales of (euro)11.9 billion in 2002. It employs
34,000 employees.
