Constellium is a global sector leader strongly committed to designing and manufacturing innovative and high value-added aluminium products and solutions for a broad range of applications dedicated primarily to aerospace, automotive and packaging markets.

We joined the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative in its very early stage as we are convinced that this voluntary standard will promote responsible practices along the aluminium value chain.

As a founding member of the Aluminium Stewardship we see this project as an important platform for cross-industry dialog. Together with the entire industry and NGOs, we work to ensure that aluminum is produced, used and is recycled as sustainably as possible – both in terms of environmental as well as social factors. The aluminum standard, which is being developed by the ASI is very comprehensive and involves the entire material management process, especially product design.

 

We believe that Constellium can make an important contribution. The great strength of the Initiative is in the support shown within the industry. The players that want to be part of the future Standard are sitting together at the table. But this forum is not only limited to industry: NGOs are playing an important role to develop and implement a standard that has real and demonstrable benefits. Many companies that use aluminium, such as automobile manufacturers, beverage can or consumer goods manufacturers have already played an active role in the ASI, which demonstrates the broad-based support for sustainable aluminium within the industry. We are convinced that it is in the interest of all concerned to reinforce the positive properties of aluminium by improving its environmental and social sustainability.
