We want to ensure that through a clear set of rules, the aluminum industry and its customer industries are recognized as responsible, sustainable actors, so that we continue can make our contribution to the world of tomorrow. Uniform standards provide insight. They create understanding and reliability and make it easier for all actors, whether legislators, observers or users to properly classify aluminum and its good use. Therefore, we are working closely with the ASI together with important, long-standing customers to define and implement the commitment to sustainable aluminium.
