ASI’s Objectives

The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) is a global non-profit standards setting and certification organisation. We bring together producers, users and stakeholders in the aluminium value chain with a commitment to maximise the contribution of aluminium to a sustainable society. Working together, we aim to collaboratively foster responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium.

ASI’s objectives are to:

  • To define globally applicable standards for sustainability performance and material chain-of-custody for the aluminium value chain
  • To promote measurable and continual improvements in the key environmental, social and governance impacts of aluminium production, use and recycling
  • To develop a credible assurance and certification system that both mitigates the risks of non-conformity with ASI standards and minimises barriers to broad scale implementation
  • to become and remain a globally valued organisation advancing programs for sustainability in the aluminium value chain, which is financially self-sustaining and inclusive of stakeholder interests.

ASI’s Strategic Plan

Each year the ASI Board updates its strategic plan that frames ASI’s activities for under four key goals: effective governance, credible program, growing membership, financial resilience. In addition to listing strategies and objectives for each goal, it identifies several performance indicators in order to gauge implementation progress.
