Alcoa has successfully achieved an additional Certification to the ASI Performance Standard, for their aluminium smelting operations in Baie-Comeau, Québec, Canada.
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Alcoa’s Baie-Comeau smelting facility has been successfully certified against ASI’s Performance Standard for responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium. The smelting facility has an annual output of approximately 280,000 metric tons of liquid metal.
The ASI Certification program was developed through an extensive multi-stakeholder consultation process and is the only comprehensive voluntary sustainability standard initiative for the aluminium value chain. The independent, third-party audit of the Alcoa facility was carried out by DNV GL.
Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI said “We congratulate Alcoa on their latest ASI Certification in Canada, joining previous certifications in Brazil and Spain that cover mining to casthouse. The ASI Certification of the Baie-Comeau facility shows their commitment to supporting a responsible aluminium value chain.”
“From mine to metal, Alcoa is recognized as a sustainability leader,” said Michelle O’Neill, Alcoa’s Senior Vice President of Government Affairs and Sustainability. “This latest ASI certification demonstrates our ongoing commitment to operate in a responsible manner while bringing long-lasting value to our stakeholders.”
